To my surprise this wine turned out to be a disappointment. It tasted sour even after sitting on the table for an hour. There were no earthy and/or tobacco flavors expected from Pinot. I can't believe R. Parker gave it 91. He never failed me before. Not the best example of some really beatiful New Zeland Pinots.
Overall OK, but you really have to like Pinots to appreciate its a bit watered down taste and you need to let it sit open for a few hours.
