Henry of Pelham Estate Winery Henry of Pelham Pinot Noir 2007
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: May 22, March 7, January 4 and December 16.
Black cherry-rich with lovely aromas of cranberry, redcurrant and beetroot. Silky, medium-bodied texture with a long finish. The winery hand-punched down the cap during fermentation (translation: they worked hard to make this wine). The winery used 30% new European oak to impart an enticing smoky finish. Food matches: pork liver pates, tuna, grilled salmon, roasted chicken, duck and other game birds.
