Nose/Aroma - Cherries and strawberries with oak and a slight floral characteristic.
Palate/Flavors - Delicate, slightly sweet, slightly acetic. Black cherries and red fruit, decently balanced with barrel spice and a touch of pepper. Lasting finish with little astringency and medium bitterness.
Style - Burgundian approach.
Food Pairing - Salmon Risotto.
Comments- Made to drink immediately. A nice food wine wine due to balance of sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Not a stunning example of New Zealand Pinot Noir, but a serviceable wine. There aren't too many NZ wines available in the United States these days.
