Tasting Notes: A full bodied style with great backbone and a long lingering finish. An
immediately accessible wine, which will improve over the next 2 years.
This Martinborough Pinot Noir is made from grapes grown on the alluvial gravel terraces for which the district has become famous. The season was exceptionally warm allowing high quality, fully ripe fruit to be harvested early with brilliant ripe cherry flavors.
This is a GREAT pinot Noir, not only because the price point is ridiculously reasonable--but because it's just damn fine wine. Clean, bright fruit notes with ripe cherry and a touch of floral notes. Nice, soft tannins on the finish and excellent balance of acidity. Great for sipping or pairing with food (a can't-go-wrong wine)!
Good charcoal flavor with full body. Fairly smooth and a good value. Would buy again.
Smooth, quite good, will order again.
