#42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 201093 Points - Wine Spectator"Smooth and polished, weaving a hint of licorice into the huckleberry, raspberry and plum flavors. A wave of mineral character adds to the depth on the long, refined finish. Drink now through 2016."91 Points - The Wine Advocate"With just 5% whole bunch ferment and one-third in French new oak, the delightful 2008 Te Muna Pinot Noir has well-defined nose with raspberry, strawberry and a touch of crushed stones and demonstrates far more clarity than Craggys other Pinot Noir '08s. The palate is medium-bodied with firm but brittle tannins, slightly lower acidity than expected but with crisp cranberry and raspberry leaf towards the finish. This Pinot has delightful purity and sense of panache. Drink now-2018. "Winemaker's notes:Deep blackish red. Dark brooding fruit aromas of black cherry, boysenberry with florals, truffle and tar. The palate is silkily structured, with layered fine tannins giving a texture of silk and rose petals. Flavors of the same black fruits and florals, backed with mushroom, bark, fennel and other spices. Dense yet elegant and poised. The finish gradually unwinds revealing bright red berry and violets.

Tasting Notes:

Deep plumy red in colour. The aromatics reveal black cherry, bark, plum, dark spices and truffle with a hint of old, dark red rose petal. Rich, yet not heavy, the palate is densely wound and brooding with fine acidity and a core of quality suede like tannin. Flavours of dark berry fruit, ripe plums, fresh dug earth, spice, coffee, hints of fennel and liquorice unfurl on the palate. The wine finishes with length and grace. A wine of engagement rather than ebullience.
