What’s in the glass tonight November 12th – a Pinot Noir

Last Shepherd 2013

The Last Shepherd Pinot Noir Central Otago 2013 – $$

Very dark inky ruby colour. 13% alc.

Light and soft savoury nose.

On palate – fruity, fleshy, tannic, brassy and brusque straight out of the bottle. This somewhat angular ands thin first impression changed, softened and rounded out over time, and into the second day. I saw typical Central red cherry flavours, ripeness a touch on the herbaceous side, with a line of straw at the back. A nice, long finish.
