A stunningly rich and flavourful cool-climate Pinot Noir. Savory dark cherries and blackberries on the nose. Incredibly juicy and mouth-watering with a gorgeous medium- to full-bodied weight. Nice long finish.

|Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Pale ruby red. Pretty, fragrant red berry and cherry aromas are underscored by subtly smoked, gamey nuances on the nose. Crisp and light bodied, with subtle, well integrated cedar oak. Tart, juicy fruit flavours and floral nuances come through on the concentrated mid-palate, lingering long on the finish. Lovely!
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
I love Pinot Noir that has that beetroot aroma and this one fits the bill. Cherry with a hint of smoke and earth. A good brace of acidity that leaves your mouth watering. Rhubarb and fresh cherry on the palate. Pair with a roasted pork tenderloin. Tasted March 26, 2017.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Wow. This is an extremely rich smelling Pinot, with huge aromas of dark cherry, brambles, earth, and spices. The taste follows closely, with a very full body for a Pinot Noir and the juicy cherry dominating. Medium tannins, medium acidity, and a tannic dark cherry finish.
|Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Nice nose of cherries. A little black pepper in retro. Very slick wine with a nice long finish. Tannins are melted. Love it. Drink it with canard confit.
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This New Zealand Pinot Noir is light ruby in colour with profound aromas of black cherry, black pepper and earth. It is medium bodied with light tannins and crisp acidity. It is teaming with black cherry and black pepper flavours. This will pair well with chicken, salmon and light meats. A great comprise wine when you can't choose between red or white.

The nose leaves a sense of promise Pinot. Aromas of dark cherry, earth, and spices. Long cherry finish.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Gorgeous glowing pale ruby colour, on the nose elements of ripe red fruit, pomegranate, some herbal notes of oregano, dried leaves and forest. On the palate - tart cherry, blackberry and tobacco with a hint of cocoa and steminess. So much flavour, It unveils medium plus acidity, light body and finish with laid back tannins. An enticing Martinborough Pinot Noir that excels at its expression. Pair with hearty trout with truffles and mushroom chicken risotto.
88 points. November 2017
|Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Ruby red hue, almost inky in colour. Rich nose of raspberry, red berry fruit, blackberry, cola, sweet vanilla, dry herbs/spices, coffee grounds, compost, smoky, and fresh earth. This Pinot smells a little like Italian Sangiovese. It's medium weight, vibrant red cherries, juicy and sweet and sour on the palate. Slight taste of herbs (oregano) and significant spice. Alcohol is quite high at 14.5% leaving a slightly acidic (mouth-drying) feel on the palate. It is quite an enjoyable, rich and fruity style of Pinot Noir that offers a lengthy finish of sweet berries. [Tasted Mar/2017]
