Not sure why I was surprised when this one poured pink. Pretty tasty! Not too heavy on the spices. There's tart cranberry of course, but also lemon and lime, and that characteristic CS minerality that I love so much. Some salinity on the finish and very light nutmeg lingers on the palate.

I normally feel that Vieille tastes just a little watery, and this one is no different. Still, nicely done and not over the top as I feared it might be.
