What’s in the glass tonight May 20th

99Rows Pinot Noir 2008

From the cellar: 99 Rows Te Muna Rd Martinborough Pinot Noir 2008 – $$$

Hoorayday, payday! This wine matches my mood…

It’s cherry red in colour; light and fragrant. There’s ripe cherries and particularly strawberries in this second label from the Julicher Estate on the Te Muna Rd river terrace just outside of Martinborough.

I see ypical pinot savouriness and spice here that I like, and oak, but the fruit is slightly backward from being held perhaps a year too long. Just look at the label…

Good with the Shepherd’s Pie dinner tonight.

3.5 out of 5
