Black Ridge Pinot Noir 14%, 750ml
This wine is silky smooth. Very rich. Very complex. Little dark cassis berries coming through. Nice hints of earthy tones.
This wine today is easily a 90 point wine. This is the kind of wine we need to bring back on the show in six or seven years and stun everybody with where it is gone. It is outstanding.
With its rich flavours and soft tannins Pinot Noir suits lean meats, such as veal, venison or turkey. The vibrant cherry and strawberry flavours of Pinot Noirs from Otago flatter the flavours of turkey like the classic garnish, cranberry sauce.
Tastes : Black olive on the nose, nice pale color, smoky, really packed with delicate strawberry fruit.
