Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from New Zealand opens with a fragrant red cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused strawberry with hints of oak, tangerine and a touch of sage. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Pinot would pair well with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright red with vibrant crimson hue. Enticing pure fruit aromas of red cherry and raspberry meld with rose and damp earth. Supple and fleshy across the palate with a youthful fruit profile and lovely fine tannins creating an elegant dry finish. Beautifully varietal. Pair with poultry.
