Very light nose makes way for a spicy flavor full of gorgeous cranberries and cherries. It's a little green and earthy, too.

Tightly wound, with a solid core of intensity to tangy raspberry, fresh herb and game meat flavors. Spice, cedar and orange skin notes accent a firm finish. Drink now through 2010. 5,000 cases imported. -DS Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2005 Wither Hills Pinot Noir 750ml

Wine Tasting NotesA wonderful deep garnet hue sets the tone for this classic Pinot Noir. The aromas are youthful, complex, and ever evolving in the glass. Look for aromas of ripe black cherry and rich plum, surrounded by blueberry fruit. Spice with hints of licorice and rose petal are compelled with a bouquet reminiscent of being deep in an oak forest in the Autumn.
