Pyramid Valley Vineyards "Riverbrook" Pinot Noir Marlborough New Zealand 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Bright medium red. Pure aromas of raspberry, cherry, spices and orange peel showed increasingly liqueur-like ripeness with extended aeration. Dense but high-pitched, with a juicy blood orange note that initially reminded me of Chambolle-Musigny. Finishes with a nicely restrained sweetness and a light touch. This is still quite young. I would have scored it even higher but for some emerging suggestions of superripeness. (Sep/Oct 2009)
