R Collection by Raymond – Lot N°5 Field Blend 2016 – California 

The nose is fruity and offers a small freshness, a very slight complexity as well as a fine crunchiness. It reveals notes of cassis, juicy Boysenberry and slight hints of wild strawberry combined with discreet hints of flowers and spices. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers finesse, a slight minerality, a very slight austerity, a small delicacy, power (but full of balance), suavity, a good freshness as well as a good definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, black cherry and small notes of liquorice stick associated with small touches of blueberry, juicy raspberry as well as slight woody hints, caramelization, cocoa and very discreet hints of tobacco. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length. Gourmandise and beautiful suavity on the finish.
