Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Lean and electric, this is a racy cabernet with rainwater coolness to its cherry-scented fruit. A spark of acidity brings out some green-plum flavor while the wine’s light tannins remain in the background, adding savor without getting in the way of its drinkability. Its spare elegance brings to mind Japanese preparations of duck, like the roasted breast with Cognacpepper sauce at Mifune in NYC.Best Buy
