WINE REVIEW
Vinous
Pulenta Estate
90+
"(all four of these bottlings say 14.5% alcohol on the label): Bright, medium ruby-red. Lovely violet lift to the aromas of blackberry, licorice and tropical dark chocolate. Slightly port-like but fresh and fine-grained, with black cherry, menthol and herb flavors lifted by an herbal greenness. A distinctly blacker wine than the XI Grand Cabernet Franc but not quite as satisfying or smooth. In fact, distinctly tight and dry, even a touch bitter-edged, finishing with obvious mineral reserve. This impressive wine will merit an even higher score if it shows more sweetness and give with bottle aging."
