On the nose, fresh red roses, raspberries, cherries, dark cherries, plum and light spices. M+ tannins, slightly meaty, lean bodied, ripe, fruits of; blackberries, black cherries, black plum, cherries, strawberries & raspberries. Nice fine chalkiness, soft volcanic minerals, soft fragrant red florals, light spices with good acidity and good finish that also drinks well young. Photos of their old truck up on the ridge above their Cellar Door and the view of their part of the Central Otago valley floor.

My FAVORITE wine delivered direct from New Zealand from a dear friend. We are enjoying it to the fullest! Mineral full bodied complex and smooth as I've ever tasted in a Pinot Noir!
