Nautilus Pinot Noir 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lightly smoky and stemmy, this shows hints of oak and dried herbs over red berry fruit. Fruity on entry with mineral-laced red cherry flavors that pick up some nutty oak on the mid-palate and hints of herbs and a touch of beet root on the back end. This is rather vivid and decidedly fruit driven, though it does pick up a touch of noticeable oak on the long finish along with a wash of savory tannins that serve as contrast to the fruit of the palate. That fruit, succulent and bright sour cherries and raspberries, does outlast the oak right through to the bright finale. Yummy. 92pts

This delicious Pinot offers a great mix of ripe, succulent cherry and wild raspberry flavors, with plenty of licorice, cedar, cigar box and fresh sage aromatics. Tannins are smooth, but offer some traction on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 950 c... Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2010 Nautilus Pinot Noir 750ml

Palish red. Subtle aromas of red berries herbs and spices lifted a high note of rose petal. Juicy fresh and nicely delineated with red fruit flavors supported by underlying minerality. Offers excellent inner-palate energy and an attractive light touch. Finishes bright and long. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Pale to medium ruby-purple in color the 2010 Pinot Noir offers aromas of ripe red cherries and cranberries with hints of cedar underbrush and violets. Medium bodied with a very good amount of mid-palate red berry flavors it has crisp acid and a low to med level of fine grained tannins finishing long. Drinking now it should keep to 2015. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A highly expressive nose features essence of red pinot with spice and floral nuances. There is good detail and plenty of verve to the delicious and intense middle weight flavors that exhibit fine balance and persistence on the clean and dry finish where a touch of wood surfaces. Lovely juice. 2017+ Burghound.
