Truly a “wow” experience. Brick core consistent to a watery salmon rim. “Proper Burgundy hitting its notes.” This was a delight and more so, having it blind. Initially thought to be older than it was older than it was, probably judging from the color and the tertiary aromatics. Sweet, sweet fruit on the attack, lovely structure, bright and masculine. Being blind, older Rayas was suggested, possibly due to a touch of orange peel on the nose. This was a very tactile experience. Silky, subtle tannins, invisible, evident only slightly on the finish. Mature complexity with great youthful sweetness. The beauty in this wine was how it all came together, like great art. It was difficult to isolate specific aromatics or specific flavors. There are clearly notes of dried cranberry, a touch of orange peel and cherry liqueur. More of an experience in perfect texture, balance, sound structure and generosity of fruit. Extremely enjoyable.
