Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Nautilus Pinot Noir is dark ruby in colour and shows an aroma of dark cherries, plums and spice. The palate is medium to full-bodied with generous fruit sweetness and succulent tannins combining to give a long warm finish.

Beautiful accompained by venison with star anise.
