2007 Seresin Sun & Moon Marlborough New Zealand Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.64, 70 cases, $60 (Est.), screw cap). 80% Raupo Creek Vineyard, 20% Home Vineyard. · Terrific aromatic interest sporting dark berries especially black raspberries, and black cherries, rose tea, oak spice and vanillin. I wanted to go on sniffing this one. Moderately rich and very tasty with flavors of plums, dark berries and toast. Smooth as a baby’s bottom in the mouth with moderate tannins and bright acidity in perfect harmony. There is a pleasing persistence of a citrus note on the finish. The impeccable balance predicts long term aging potential. Reviewed April 23, 2010
