Three and a half glasses
90 Points Wine Advocate : ?Quite a high extraction on the nose with dark cherry and plum with a touch of mulberry, the palate soft and supple with a plush finish tinged with white pepper. Some classic Pinot earthy elements to the aroma. The mid-palette brings out dark cherry juice and some mushroom. A joy to sip.?
Subtle floral notes wafting above cherry, berry, leathery undertones. Pleasant berry and grape flavour are evident immediately. Slightly thin, almost cola-like texture is okay given the noticeable swirling sweet fruit flavours. Medium finish and, when all is said and done, a decent dinner party wine - the guest who brought it will get a reinvite.
External Reviews for Delta Vineyard Pinot Noir Marlborough
The 2007 Pinot Noir is much better, quite a high extraction on the nose with dark cherry and plum with a touch of mulberry, the palate soft and supple with a plush finish tinged with white pepper.
The 2006 Pinot Noir was tasted in London with cranberry and raspberry leaf on the nose, just lacking some definition on the palate.
We can't get enough of this New Zealand Pinot Noir. It's like drinking a glass of pure heaven with all the freshly crushed raspberry fruits. This is a light-bodied, dry red wine that's just amazing alone but works wonderfully with meat dishes as well.
People have a tendency to overlook New Zealand Pinot Noir, perhaps because of its great success in producing world-class whites. However, the cool, maritime climate and excellent soils make regions like Marlborough perfect for growing Burgundian-inspired reds that combine Old World structure and finesse with New World ripe, super-bright fruits that appeal to many wine drinkers. The 2006 Delta boasts cherry, violets and a touch of raspberry on the nose and palate, with such vibrant acidity that it is easy to imagine pairing with just about anything. Beyond the classic matches of salmon, tuna and pork, I envisioned serving this with paella or risotto. This wine has instant appeal for Oregon wine drinkers looking for something different, those who enjoy ripe fruits but find California wines to be too overpowering, and those who like classically styled wines but are looking for something less dusty or earthy. And the lighter style makes this refreshing for anyone who just canrsquo;t bear to give up their red wines, even in the sweltering summer heat.
The 2008 Pinot Noir takes time to coalesce in the glass, but gains intensity, revealing black cherry, a touch of iodine, violets and a faint tinny element. The palate is medium-bodied, quite fleshy, clean and crisp, though lacking some complexity towards the blueberry-tinged finish that shows a little heat.
