Matua Valley Marlborough Estate Pinot Noir 2009

Member Review by joebernardinoATyahoo:

Light bodied with red fruit, cherry cola, licorice, and a bit of oak. A little "hot" due to 14% alcohol, a bit high for pinot noir. Decent.

Pale red. Cherry and strawberry aromas are lifted by a spicy element. Supple, fruity and soft, offering good varietal character at a very gentle price. Finishes with soft, fine-grained tannins and decent length.

Cedary oak underscores cola, black cherry and leathery flavors. Tart, earthy structure dries the finish. Drink now through 2008.
