“ I've seen few vintages with such vivid and flavorful fruit, while still perfectly supported by freshness. They tend to have a certain silky texture, too. That describes this perfectly. It is very elegantly styled but wonderfully delicious. That is always in a dry, clean way, not ever a bit jammy but lifted and lively. This is a Contraste that won't impress with richness, but it does everything else pretty brilliantly. I do idly wonder if these 2015s will be so impressive in the long haul, when the spectacular fruit fades a bit, but it's hard not to be excited now, and wines with good acidity tend to surprise you. They hang on well. At the price point, it's hard to go wrong here.” 90rp
