3. Stoneleigh Pinot Noir Marlborough (2009)

« Prev Next » 3 of 24
Average price: $15.27 from 3 stores
Smokey and stemmy on the nose with a touch of raw beefiness layered over fresh red berry fruit that shows a hint of holiday spice. Very focused on entry, this spreads out on the palate to show off lovely ripe cherry fruit framed with light herbal notes over a base of earthy elements. There are some tannins here, enough to keep this tense in the mouth, but the fruit and acidity are really the stars here. Raspberry and cherry fruit pop on the finish, which shows more light herb notes and a really lovely stony base, though this does show a touch of heat. 88pts

  • 1042430BrugmanRose Gregory, you did a very nice job on locating and tasting these Pinot Noirs. I see many of them in my local stores and just can not conclude from the labels what I am suppose to expect from each individual wine. Your analysis has been helpful in guiding me to what I would like.
