2005 Rippon Lake Wanaka Central Otago Pinot Noir

12.8% alc., $45. · Well spiced cherries with an edge. On the palate the wine has good grip with mediumweighted flavors of red cherries, baking spices, and a hint of oak. Very tame tannins. Excellent persistence on the finish which features a citric cherry tang. This wine will find many fans for its modest alcohol and food-friendly zippy acidity. Reviewed October 13, 2008
