Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from New Zealand is very good. It opens with a blackberry and red currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic, mouthwatering and juicy. The flavor profile is a red plum with notes for pomegranate, blackberry and gentle minerality. I also detected hints of Dr. Pepper and a touch of cinnamon. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. This Pinot Noir is very nice and food friendly. I would pair it with cherry amaretto chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Intense dark ruby red. Aroma: Intensely lifted notes of blackberries and plums. Dried thyme and sweet, spicy oak aromas give this wine an intriguing nose and balances the fruit aromas nicely. Palate: Rich and full flavours of plums, dark forest berries and spice. Ripe and luscious, the fruit flavours are well framed by silky tannins, giving the wine structure and great length. Cellar: Enjoy from two to ten years. Food Pairing: Ideal with a wild mushroom risotto, pasta marinara, grilled tuna, venison, and lamb dishes.

Organic status: not organic
