Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from New Zealand is a really good deal. It opens with an attractive cherry-cola bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a pleasant plum with hints of raspberry, strawberry and chalky minerality. The finish is rather dry and subtle. The panel suggested pairing this food friendly Pinot with grilled mahi mahi or turkey tetrazzini. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Dark red with rich aromas of berry fruits, spice, and hints of dark chocolate. Flavors of dark berry fruits such as cherry, black currant, and blackberry with cocoa and spicy oak undertones. The tannins are soft and well rounded; the palate is well structured and balanced with excellent length. Perfect with mustard & herb-crusted rack of lamb or char-grilled tuna.
