2008 Mud House Central Otago New Zealand Pinot Noir
14.0% alc., $19, screw cap. Imported by Wine Trading Collective, San Francisco, CA. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Initially the wine offers bright aromas of strawberries, red cherries and sage, but fades some over time in the glass with toasted oak peeking out. A lighter weighted Pinot that is not much more than pleasant fruit, but is easy to drink. Confected flavors of red cherries, red berries and red hard candy cling to the finish. Decent.
