Aromas of strawberry, nutmeg, and smoke start things off. Super jammy on the palate - just like you're making up some strawberry preserves. Acid seems a little disjointed with the profile of the wine. Medium weight tannins.

Terrific price:value ratio. A lighter style of Pinot Noir that can take on a nice chill with confidence. Silky tannins, balanced alcohol. Black cherries galore.

2013 vintage - strawberry & raspberry preserves with a touch of cinnamon. Dry but very fruit forward.

A sphere of infinite smoothness hovers in place in a room of intense purple; the room is only accessed through a secret door that is never behind the same bookcase twice.

Good aroma and taste which is not so strong plum sour flavor. For that, serving temperature is important. Don't be higher. Should be <18. This is a point deferent from another label, NZ Pinot Noir. @1050, TBreeze, 180717 - 180720

Didn’t enjoy this as much the second time around, tart fruits again but very watery and a funky musty finish.

Very good flavoured wine for the price. We will go back and buy a case.
