    I tasted this today (13 June) at a blind staff tasting and initially thought it was Grenache due to its dark color and red plum with smoke nose. Turns out it is a fairly weighty Pinot Noir with dark, red fruits, lush mouthfeel and a small bit of gamy notes. Super complex and firm with nice tannic structure. Should last many years, as it seems to be built for the long run. Watch out Sonoma and Burgundy...competition from New Zealand has arrived!

    You could easily spend a lot more on Pinot that's not even half as beautiful as this! The nose offers up lovely, dusty notes of fruit with a hint of old world style. Hi-toned ferrous notes allow for such an intense savory flavor profile. On the palate is an intriguing mix of fruit, herbs, dried flowers with a pleasant mineral driven complexity. If you're looking for an elegant Pinot, that holds up to wines twice its price, grab one for your next blind tasting. A finer Pinot bargain will be hard to find. Enjoy!
