'Why can't we all just get along?' Well, it's nice to see this hopeful thought works somewhere in the world. Take for instance, wine, where for several seasons now our resident Kiwi guru Ryan Woodhouse has collaborated with the fine folks at Te Whare Ra in Marlborough to create superbly crafted, small production bottlings from select fruit. Their achievement is your gain, as this modestly-priced Pinot Noir possesses varietally pure aromatic elements, evocative of wild berries, black plums and cherries, with a savory, mid-weight mouthfeel and excellent delineation on the smooth finish. Coming in at only 13.5% ABV, it would make an excellent, well-balanced red for Thanksgiving dinner and throughout the holidays.
