2010 Cambridge Road Martinborough New Zealand Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.76, 300 cases. Imported by Terrell Wines, San Francisco, CA. · Deep, dark reddish purple hue in the glass. The nose is not typical for Pinot Noir, with aromas of dark, cooked fruits, black licorice and oak. Relatively big and bold, with blackberry, black currant and raisin flavors that push the ripeness to the edge. The higher alcohol produces a softness in the mouth, but overall the wine is a rugged, ribald, roasted fruit bomb. Unchanged the following day when retasted from an opened bottle. Could this wine have been harmed by heat in transit? Score: NR. Reviewed October 21, 2014 ARTICLE »

2009 Cambridge Road Martinborough New Zealand Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., pH 3.65, 600 cases. Imported by Terrell Wines, San Francisco, CA. A small vineyard on the Martinborough Terrace first planted in 1986 to Pinot Noir and Syrah. The vineyard is farmed biodynamically. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Very appealing aromatically with scents of wild cherry, rose petal, baking spice, vanilla and sandalwood. Discreetly concentrated core of flavorful black raspberry and black cherry fruits slightly shadowed by oak. The wine has good verve and brightness. A solid, but not inspirational wine. Score: 89.
