Goose Bay Pinot Noir New Zealand 2006

Member Review by hershey:

Light and fruit forward, a little more than I'd like, but very easy to drink and popular. The nose has good dark cherries, some pipe tobacco and hints of light brown leather. The mouth lacks the minerality that I'd like, but has some even smooth tannins, lots of fruit, and a hint of kumquat on the finish.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Goose Bay Pinot Noir is produced using grapes harvested in New Zealand's South Island. The long, cool growing season and clay loam soils have contributed incredible flavors of black cherry and strawberry to this wine. Serve this Pinot alongside light meals or cheese.
