2018 Mt. Difficulty Roaring Meg Pinot Noir Central Otago New Zealand
This wine celebrates Pinot Noir from a warmer season in Central Otago. Wild raspberry and red cherry characters dominate while soft sweet brown spice characters add in detail. Savoury red cherry notes lead the wine onto the palate; the wine flows with good texture. Fine elegant tannins rise out of the mid-palate and with wild raspberry notes drive the finish alongside fine acidity.
Spicy, featuring a whiff of cigar box that mingles with the dense plum, black licorice and huckleberry flavors. Nutmeg and cedar notes linger on the finish, where the tannins become more gripping.
