Delta Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

  • Area: New Zealand, Marlborough
  • Grape: Pinot Noir
  • Alcohol: 13%
  • Rating: Black 82, Dilettante 82
Description: Dark cherries, plums and a hint of mulberry is found on the nose and palate. In the mouth there is an off-putting bitter fizziness that overpowers the fruit. The very dry finish has notes of wood, canned peaches and bitter fruit. It was drinkable though not one of my favorites. Perhaps its vibrant youth can be tempered with a little cellaring.

Price: $17
