A cross between Old World elegance and New World charm for this delicious Pinot Noir. I have had some really good wine from the Marlborough region of New Zealand lately and this is no exception. Pale in color as a Pinot should be, the nose was very bright with cherry and strawberry notes. Old world funk on the palate with bright fruit made for an interesting taste profile. Cherry spritz comes to mind with some green peppers mingling about. Hints of strawberry daiquiri and some cedar came through on the back end and the acidity was great. This was a very interesting wine and we thoroughly enjoyed it with some Pate and cheeses. I would also pair it with Turkey and cranberry sauce. $20 and 90 points make this an outstanding 5 star wine for me. Ps. I love the label, very classy. Salut….
