Nautilus Pinot Noir 2011

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

Refreshing and light, with raspberries and a hint of spice on the finish.

Meaty with some barn nose characteristics on the nose. Very acidic but with some nice cherry notes. Earthy throughout, softly sweet with a decent finish.

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.

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

Generous, with gobs of black cherry, currant, dried raspberry and plum notes, accented with sage, cedar and mineral flavors. A firm structure and thick tannins provide some appealing traction. Drink now through 2017. 900 cases imported. -MW Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2009 Nautilus Pinot Noir 750ml
