Natalie's Score: 90/100
The silky tannins and gorgeous mouth-feel of this seductive Pinot Noir strike me most. That's followed by bright red berry and cherry aromas on the palate and finish. There's no first use oak on this wine, only second use oak and stainless steel to preserve freshness. Pair with mature, hard cheeses.
Delightful Duck Wine

Reviews and Ratings
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A lively Pinot Noir with aromas of white pepper, raspberry baking spices, and cherries. The taste is tart cherry with a little fine tannin to support it, as well as medium-high acidity.
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Marlborough Pinot Noirs showcase characteristics of a beautiful ruby color, flavors of dark berries, dried cherry, while on the palate the presence of cinnamon and wild herbs become apparent. The tannins are soft, well rounded. This wine pairs nicely with aged cheddar.
|Brent Gushowaty rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Eye - Very pale with a cherry rim
Nose – A touch of wood, cherry, strawberry. A little one-dimensional, some good pomegranate acidity on the nose.
Palaate - As on the nose, cherry with some strawberry and a touch of pomegranate. Some smokiness obscured the fruit complexity. Intensity medium minus. Balanced but fairly simple.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Med ruby with floral, raspberry and dried cranberry nose. Med light body, lifted juicy palate of sour cherry, red berry with light spice and med length. Soft tannin on the medium finish. No new oak used and some stainless to maintain vibrancy. Good value in the $20 pirce range for Pinot Noir. Pair with pork tenderloin or Thanksgiving turkey. Tasted Sept 2015 at Villa Maria winemaker lunch.
