Review: 2012 Loveblock Pinot Noir Central Otago

Share

LBK_pinotnoir Btl_NV_rgbThis New Zealand Pinot (produced by Kim Crawford) is a lean expression of the grape, particularly by Kiwi standards. Herbal, almost vegetal on the nose, it hits the palate with a surprising degree of sweetness. This settles down quickly once it gets some air, however, revealing notes of cherry juice, cinnamon, a bit of oxidized citrus, and some tobacco. The finish is drying and surprisingly tannic, almost bittersweet at times.

    Looks like a bottle of wine that would go with just about anything. I am not a wine drinker but my sisters are both wine drinkers especially at meal time.
