Wild Rock Pinot Noir 2009 winew review by (PB)


Bright cherry hue of the lighter persuasion with good strawberry aromas with some light spice.

Palate--Surprisingly chewy presence with a citrusy grape fruity note that is astounding. Not your crazy fruit forward variety of Pinot you get from Oregon and California. This Central Otago (New Zealand)is a wine unto itself.

Really interesting. We'll see how it breathes...

The citrusy beam dissipates as it breathes; I like this style of Pinot Noir and at $9 it was a nice treat but it sells for around $19 normally. I paired it with a seafood soup and it was a nice accompaniment so raise a glass!
