2008 Deep Cove Central Otago Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $19, screw cap. Imported by San Francisco Wine Exchange, San Francisco, CA. A confusing new name and label for Pinot Noir from Wild Earth Vineyards Ltd., who produced highly touted Pinot Noirs in 2006 and 2007 under the Wild Earth label. Sourced from estate Bannockburn vineyards and blend with grapes from other Central Otago vineyards. · The strawberry and black cherry fruit is on the ripe side with a subtle roasted quality. Still quite tasty in a simple, straightforward way. Velvety in the mouth with gossamer tannins. An easy going drink that delivers at a value price. Reviewed July 15, 2010
