2014 Cognizant Marlborough New Zealand Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 112 cases, $16.99 (sold out), screwcap. Imported by DJK Imports, South San Francisco, CA. Cognizant is a new collaborative project between K&L and some of New Zealand’s best winemakers. This wine was made from the same grapes as TWR (Te Whare Ra) 2014 Pinot Noir that was Decanter magazine’s Top New Zealand Pinot Noir for 2014. Winemakers are Jason and Anna Flowerday of TWR. Fruit is from home block in Renwick and a neighboring block in Raiwiri. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Challenging to pull any fruit out of the nose which features aromas of woodland and roasted almond. Light to mid weight sandalwood-infused flavors of cherry, red and purple berries, and spice. Easy to drink, with modest tannins, and a cherry-fueled finish. Score: 88. Reviewed February 5, 2016 ARTICLE »
