An enticing fragrance of dusky dark fruits - black cherries, plums and berries intermingles
with rich earthy aromas, mocha and exotic spices. The intensely varietal palate of
ripe red and black fruit has chary oak flavors and plush velvety tannins that clothe a
tautly structured frame.
The 2006 Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir reflects the benefits of a naturally low-cropping season and finishes with great length and depth of flavor.
Not a big fan of Pinot Noirs, but my wife loves them so I buy them. This one, however is a keeper. Not as thin as other Pinots and was very smooth with good, bold flavors.
