The 2006 Brokenwood Pinot Noir has a deep center with youthful purple tints around the
edges. This wine exhibits a complex nose of lifted cherry, dark chocolate and spice over sweet,
earthy notes. Layers of smoky vanillin oak appear in the background. The palate is robust in
flavor with rich, black currant and brandied pudding flavors balanced by ripe tannins and a
persistent, dry finish. This perfectly balanced Pinot Noir will mature further with time in the
bottle, although it is enjoyable as a young Pinot Noir.
"Light and silky, with a lovely burst of cherry and raspberry fruit up front, lingering on the
polished finish with hints of cream and flowers."
"Medium red. Smoky cherry and dark berry aromas, with deeper licorice and sassafras
qualities adding complexity. Silky black raspberry and cherry compote flavors are broad and sweet,
with musky herbs gaining strength with air. Finishes with a hint of sweet maple and gentle lift."
