South Island Pinot Noir

Villa Maria

Taylors Pass Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

This wine looks medium dark in the glass and smells that way, too. The nose boasts black tea and coffee notes, but that elegant Burgundian stuff. It's the blackest tea and espresso that comes through beside black plum and berry. The palate shows big, dark fruit, too, and a bold cola note that's tinged by black cherry. Acidity is zippy and the tannins are firm, but it’s Pinot all the way. I paired it with my wife’s delicious sautéed mushrooms, and it was perfect. — 12 days ago

Marlborough Pinot Noir

Haven’t tasted a lot of pinot noirs from New Zealand, but like this one very much - clean, almost austere, flavors with noticeable acidity to balance the red fruit undertones — 6 days ago

Dog Point Vineyard

Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

The oak has integrated since my last tasting 81 weeks ago. Sinewy aromas of beetroot and root vegetables but still manages to be plump on the palate. Great QPR at just under $40. From Marlborough - a little Pinot Noir gem in a sea of Sauvignon Blanc. — 15 days ago
