Ninth Island Pinot Noir 2006

Member Review by enotheque:

Not so sure of what to make of it. Love the balance, touch of spice and lovely strawberry, plum, raspberry red fruit. Wonderful news and good texture. It's a cool-climate Pinot Noir, so you might not be taken too aback by the really high acidity. Don't get me wrong, I like the wine, but the fresh raspberry juice acidity indicates a trend towards excess. See what you make of it.
