2007 Freefall Central Otago Pinot Noir
13.5% alc., $23.25. Cool package. Imported by Station Imports LLC, Colorado Springs, Colorado. · Deep reddishviolet color. Funky reduction initially blows off. An earthy nose that smells of the soil and is heavily perfumed with blackberry and black plum fruit. Substantial dark fruits with a dusting of dark chocolate and oak spice framed by plentiful acidity. A very smooth mouthfeel makes for easy drinking. Reviewed May 7, 2009 ARTICLE »
