    February 10, 2012 - Light red color...surprisingly so. Clove, cherry and touch of rose on the nose. Light, bright plum, cherry and strawberry on the palate. Not a big fan of NZ Pinot Noir but this is nicely balanced and drinking well.

    June 8, 2011 - (13%) Light on entry this one is juicy and upfront showing bright cherry and wild strawberry flavors. Orange rind notes emerge on a "heavier" mid-palate along with a clove spice note before a soft, tangy tannic, sour fruit finish that while a bit short is still nice as it fades away. A bit one dimensional and on the simple side but certainly well made. Pair it with some summer grilling and your likely to enjoy...

    May 30, 2011 - Well balanced fruity pinot from New Zealand. Medium purple color, notes of lighter red fruits...cherry and raspberry on the palate. Nose was light, not as floral as I would have expected. Good summer barbecue wine.

    May 21, 2011 - Simon/Sandy dinner with Jason/Sandra, Eric/Katherine (Bettys): Bright cherry. Simple and upfront. No huge excitement.
