Brent scored this wine: 93/100
The wine here is very pale with a rim like the colour of pomegranate seeds. On the nose it shows cranberry/pomegranate fruit, some minerality, baking spices and a good acidity. The light red fruits, minerality and baking spices are all on the palate as well. The texture is remarkable. The very fine grained fruit lingers and haunts for a long while B to B+ ~ 93
