2011 Black Estate Waipara Valley North Canterbury New Zealand Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., screwcap. Imported by Terrell Wines, San Francisco, CA. A biodynamic, family owned vineyard planted on north facing clay and limestone slopes. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The nose opens with some struck match reduction that resolves somewhat over time in the glass to reveal aromas of black cherry, briar and seasoned oak. Light to mid weight flavors of juicy strawberry and cherry with a touch of spice and green savory herbs. Good tension, with firm tannins showing up on the finish. Score: 87.
