2014 Rod Easthope Central Otago New Zealand Pinot Noir

14.0% alc, $11.99 (NakedWines.com Angel Price), screwcap. Imported by nakedwines.com, Napa, CA. Includes a measured amount of whole cluster. · Moderate reddish purple hue in the glass. Nicely perfumed with aromas of cherry, eldeberry and woodfern. The mid weight core of dark red cherry and berry fruits framed by silky tannins is easy to like. The intense mid palate fruit attack continues with through the finish. I like this wine for its open, gregarious personality. A terrific value. Score: 91. Reviewed February 5, 2016
