The Crater Rim Pinot Noir Waipara 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very pretty, cola, black cherry, herb, spice, floral. Bright, super fine in the mouth, detailed fruit, black berry, herb, lovely nuanced oak and soil tones, this is a winner, lovely spicy fini, succulent tannins on finish.

Nice, musky, low, some nutty oak, little stemmy herbs. Nice brightness, astringent tannins, round, kind of opulent but structured with a nice mineral tone on the back, then a touch of grapefruit oil in the red fruit, spicy, lightly minty finish, peppery.

Aromas of red and black cherries grandma's rose garden savoury spice and hints of game. The palate has an attack with bright red and black fruit flavours. Fine structured tannins adds texture complimented by mineral acidity on the finish.

Aromas of cherry plum and raspberry fruit characters layered with crushed wild herbs and smoke are immediately apparent. On the palate the fresh berry fruit with hints of dark chocolate are tempered by fine ripe tannins to give a powerful lingering finish.
