Added Oct 19, 2007 at 9:15pmPerhaps our bottle (purchased that day at a discount wine shop) had not been stored properly. The wine had aged: tawney in color, little fruit. One strong note on the nose and palate: pepper, black pepper. The alcohol level (14.8?) overpowered the wine. Altogether an unbalanced and disappointing wine $29 wine, expecially considering that we planned a meal around it. I've had wonderful wines in decades past from Montelena. I'll write this one off to being stored in too hot a setting...

Added Oct 22, 2007 at 7:06pmA nice Alsatian Riesling: fruit, hint of mineral, more than sufficient acid, though.

Added Oct 23, 2007 at 4:39amPepper and licorice are on the heavy side. Nice plum on the palate. This wine has all the elements of a Burgundy but "at warp speed' as one of my wine instructors noted. Another over the top wine from down under. Usually one expects this from the Australians not the New Zealanders.
Added Oct 23, 2007 at 4:24amBright cherry fruit. A hint of pepper and mocha (in the Burgundy style), with just a bit of earthiness. 13.5% alcohol in a pinot makes for easy drinking or tasting.
