What the Critics say
"A tight and focused second wine from Potensac with currant and lemon-rind character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish."
Medium ruby-red in color with slight purple touches at the rim. The aromas are fresh with a clean, plumy red-fruit character, a similar clean, red-fruit nature is seen on the palate. The wine has a smooth textured mid-palate with a light structure, whose fine tannins give a little grip right at the end. Acidity is fresh, alcohol is well in balance and the finish has a fair length.
