Brancott Pinot Noir 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

On the tart side, light in texture, with cherry and spice flavors that linger on the polished finish. Drink now through 2008.

Starts with some caramelly, cola-like notes, then adds cherries and a hint of green. Develops sassafras-wintergreen-root beer flavors, all carried across the palate on a soft, fruity core.

A plump, corpulent wine with just enough tannin to give it structure in the face of relatively low acidity. It's lush and chocolaty, adding hints of vanilla and dried spices. Drink now.

Light in body, with a bright garnet hue. Bursting with cherry and ripe strawberry fruits, with gentle spice and silky tannins.

A lightweight, delicate Pinot Noir, with a light ruby hue and pretty cherry and herb flavors framed by oaky notes of brown sugar and vanilla. Good value.

Montana (sold as Brancott here in the U.S.) has been trying to make good Pinot at a good price for years, and they seem to be getting closer to their goal. The 2007 South Island Pinot blends fruit from Waipara and Marlborough into a soft, round, cuddly whole, redolent of root beer and beet root and ending with a flourish of tart cherries. Drink now.

Supple, with raspberry, green tea and wild strawberry flavors underscored by vanilla oak- and herb-tinged tannins. Drink now.
