Brilliant violet. Vibrant red and dark berry aromas show excellent clarity and take on hints of candied lavender and smoky minerals with air. Taut and sharply delineated, offering juicy black raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly with air. In an animated, mineral-driven style, finishing with strong, spicy thrust and red-fruit-dominated persistence. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2018)

Finally Ted Vance from the Source decided to dump some Dutraive to Vin in Chicago. I was pretty excited and bought a lot of it. This one comes from the son Justin. Cloudy in color the wine delivers a punch of acidity that lingers and twists your mouth for quite a while. Subtle and nuanced. Great

Wow. Like a 350 pound lineman who can pirouette and run a 4.4 40. Likey.

Very thin, bright ruby red color, tart cranberries with a hint of minty funk on the nose.
