"There are cherry and plum notes that dominate on the nose of this pale ruby-coloured New Zealand Pinot Noir, with secondary mushroom, earth and white pepper notes typical of the grape. It’s light-bodied and dry, with tart cherry and raspberry flavours front and centre, some secondary cocoa and white pepper/spice notes and light tannins on the finish. A good bet for festive fall fare, be it turkey or ham. 3.5 stars"
