From an Oregon winery/winemaker, Peter Rosback, who can't sit still, he make New Zealand Pinot Noir in the wintertime here. Garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is bright with cherries and some black cherries with spice and char. Medium to full bodied. Light tannins. Good acidity. On the palate, this is tasty. Showing some development, but probably not at peak. Lovely semi-plush texture. Cherries, black cherries, slight herbal note and char. Long finish. drink over the next ten years. Good on its own, this will work well with roasted chicken.
