This is the second wine of Rauza-Gassies. Very nice showing for this. Purple in color. A very pretty noce of cassis, dark cherries, and baking spice. On the palate, slightly bitter at first but then opens into lovely black cherry fruit with some spice. More elegant and seeming at or close to peak. Mild tannins. Lovely finish. Another value play in Bordeaux (in great vintages anyway).
