Wine Review: This translucent ruby red colored Pinot Noir from New Zealand opens with red raspberry and toasted marshmallow like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is black cherry with a hint of red currant and a touch of old oak and minerality. The finish is dry and its fades away nicely. This Pinot is versatile and food friendly. I would pair it with grilled red snapper and a mango salsa. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich garnet core with purple tinted rim. Ripe dark fruits of black cherry and black currant, followed by bright lifted aromas of raspberry. The nose is complex with spice and a hint of vanilla. Beautifully bright and lifted, with delicious ripe raspberry, strawberry and layers of darker fruits. The acidity is well balanced and leads to an inviting and structured mid palate which is weighty and mouth coating. The wonderful fine grained tannin draws the palate towards an elegant well integrated finish and great length.
