On the palate this wine expresses flavors fresh pomegranate, cranberry, pink lemonade, and sea salt. This wine comes across really salty for some odd reason. Without knowing too much about the soils where these grapes were grown, I would immediately think they were calcareous in nature and perhaps seashell and beach sand.
The texture of the wine is also quite round and full and the acidity is very light but shows up on the finish. In my honest opinion this wine is dying for shellfish and would also pair with salmon and capers. This is a great summer wine for red wine drinkers that still want the complexities involved with their favorite Syrah's and Cab's. The finish is quite extended and the strawberry and light cherry notes are wonderful. 89+ points
