Matua Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Spicy cherry nose
Some tobacco on the palate
Simple, smooth finish

This wine has a nice, fresh taste and is simple and smooth. It can usually be found for $9-10 a bottle. If you like Pinot Noir, keep an eye open for offerings from New Zealand. This one isn't particularly interesting, but a lot of them are. Wine makers in New Zealand are on a steep curve with Pinot Noir today like they were with Sauvignon Blanc five years ago. Raise a glass to the Kiwis!
