Villa Maria Pinot Noir Cellar Selection 2009
A scented bouquet of red and dark cherries, black plum and spice notes. This wine is concentrated and rich displaying long layers of flavour, subtle wild thyme notes, integrated acidity and fine grainy tannins. An elegant Pinot Noir, exhibiting finesse and complexity with underlying structure and a silky texture. This wine can be enjoyed now but with careful cellaring will continue to develop for another five to eight years. Serving suggestion: Red and white meats including lamb, duck and wild game.
Two and a half glasses
External Reviews for Villa Maria Pinot Noir Cellar Selection
Slightly herbal in style, with hints of tomato leaf accenting black cherry fruit. This is a crisp, fresh — even tangy — red that perhaps needs a few months to settle down and smooth out. Try it later this year; it should cellar well through 2018.
Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2009 Cellar Selection Marlborough Pinot Noir displays aromas of red currants and pomegranate with nuances of bay leaf, underbrush and cloves. Medium-full bodied, it has a very good concentration of red berry flavors supported by crisp acid and ripe tannins, finishing long with a pleasant herbal lift. Drink it now to 2015.
