2010 is amazing. More recent vintages have not been up to this. Lots of experience with this label. Find the 2010 or older. '11 on has been a dramatically more pedestrian offering.

В аромате брусника, клюква, много битого камня, сухая хвоя, земля. Достаточно лёгкое тело, во вкусе красные кисло-горькие ягоды, белый перец, морская вода. Сочное, пряное послевкусие. 16,5/20

Very Earthy. Lots of pepper. ...eating with chocolate seriously balanced it out. Improved, even.
$19.95 + .05¢ on the .05 cent wine sale at BevMo.

I buy it because of the three strips label and burgundy bottle. Creative label matching interesting wine. Fresh & young blueberry, mulberry hit nose. Oak plays a small role in aroma. I find chocolate, herb, wet wood. Mouthfeel is amazing. High acidity makes it not dry, easy to drink. Silky tannin keeps a long finish.

Baking spice on the nose. Big, bright red acidity clobbers the tongue. Dried herbal quality is revealed as the slightly underripe cherry melts away.

Light pinot with balanced but pronounced fruit. Cherry and raisin with a bit of caramel later on. Great flavor for the value.

2010 Triplebank Awatere Valley Pinot Noir. A lot of earth with each sip...not what I prefer in a Pinot Noir. I'm sure it would taste better with age.
