    August 6, 2016 - Mostly lingonberry, slight hint of strawberry. Ends peppery.

    August 25, 2015 - Had this at a great restaurant in the TV Tower in Auckland. Fantastic 360 degree views and great attentive service. Better than the 2010 Reserve I tasted more recently. Great pure blue, red and beetroot, vanilla, bubblegum and spice aromas. The palate was really singing with nice depth, lovely plushness and a medium stylish finish.

    June 13, 2014 - Pinot noir typé Nouveau monde avec une robe assez dense pour un pinot, une nez charmeur sur les épices et une bouche ample et légèrement sucré mais sans aucune complexité. finale courte.

    April 4, 2014 - Thin, fruit driven New World Pinot Noir. Nil secondary characteristics. I do not think it has the elements to improve with time.
