Nobilo Pinot Noir Marlborough 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Deep plum red with excellent clarity. Nose: Lovely aromas of black cherries, plums and chocolate with hints of toasty oak. Palate: A rich, mouth filling Pinot Noir with full dark fruit flavours, good weight. and subtle oak complexity. The attractive, velvety tannin structure is persistent to the finish.

As all the Icon Pinot Noirs have over the years, this one shows a fair amount of oak: cinnamon, toast and vanilla all mark the nose. But this medium-bodied wine also shows layers of soft, supple fruit underneath. Give it another year to integrate, then drink it over the next 3-4.

This wine shows a fair bit of oak influence; notes reminiscent of brown sugar and mocha mingle with savory, root-vegetable-like fruit. The tannins are supple, the wine reasonably balanced in terms of alcohol and acids. Drink now.

Lively, with fine intensity and supple texture to smoky black cherry, spice and pomegranate flavors underscored by cedary oak. Tangy structure lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2010.

Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2009 Icon Pinot Noir has aromas of black cherry, kirsch and warm raspberry with some cinnamon and a whiff of dried leaves. Supported by medium-high acid and a medium level of chewy tannins, the berry and cinnamon fruit on the palate of this medium-full bodied is just a little lean, giving a medium-long finish. Drink it now to 2013.
