Deep vibrant purple in colour, the nose is full of dark berry fruits of plums and raspberries, with touches of spice. The nose is rounded out with well integrated fine oak. The palate is soft, generous, silky and seamless, full of ripe fruits, with complex earthy aromas. A complete wine encapsulating the essence of Pinot Noir.
"Really quite plush, with outstanding depth to the black cherry, roast duck, Asian spice and pomegranate flavors. Stays fresh and focused, with pretty floral undertones, green tea notes and suave tannins lingering on the cedary, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2011."
This was a great recommendation from wine.com. I love the Pinot Noir from Central Otago, usually at higher price points than this wine. This Pinot is a great value for the money. It has terrific aromatics and a wonderful mouth-feel, typically seen only in much higher-priced bottles. Nice dark fruits of ripe plums and blackberries, with notes of cherries as well. This wine is lovely from start to finish and is a great example of why Central Otago is such a promising emerging region for Pinot Noir. Nice lingering finish and leaves me with a desire to pick up additional bottles. You can't go wrong here, value and quality in the glass.
