2010 Over The Edge Martinborough New Zealand Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., $11, screw cap. Imported by Meadowbank Estates, Alexandria, VA. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Weighed down by oak trappings, this wine still presents good value. Aromas of black cherries, plum sauce and oak spice and smoke. Rustic and earthy as Martinborough Pinots can be, with a medium bodied core of darker fruits including flavors of blackberry and cassis. Very smooth on the palate, leaving a finish with oak in its wake. Decent. Reviewed November 29, 2011
