Too young right now. Overwhelming acidity makes it seem carbonated.
I have to agree with pmurz, it did seem to be carbonated.
1) Smoky, pepery cinnamon and plums on the nose 2) Cherry, Raspberry and stewed plums on the palate with slight hints of strawberry and truffle. Oaky. 3) Well balanced. 4) Nice smooth finish accompanied with excellent length. D 5) Tannins powerful but decent due to youth of wine.

For the price, this is a good introduction to NZ Pinot Noir, showing a smooth mouthfeel and smoky. briary complexities layered over tangy beet and cherry fruit.
Palish red. Sweet red berries and spices on the nose. Ripe, high-toned and easygoing, with a creamy sweetness to the flavors of cherry and orange peel. I enjoyed this wine's seamless mid-palate texture but marked it down a bit for slightly dry tannins.
Light and appealing, with lots of mulberry, raspberry and gentle green herb flavors that linger on the smoothly polished finish. Drink now through 2007.
Light and refined, with earthy, peppery cherry flavors that echo on the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2004.
