Points: 90
Rating: 4 Stars

Medium to light red colour with a trace of purple, the bouquet minty and shrill, with sharp-edged, almost medicinal overtones. The palate finishes with heat and astringency, and there seems to be some extraction in the tannins. The acidity is strident and seems a little out of harmony. A bigger but less refined style of pinot.
