Wine Tasting Note Dashwood Pinot Noir, 2004, Marlborough, New Zealand.
Available from Oddbins for £9.99.
Oh now this is gorgeous – unscrewing the cap the aroma of red berries just bursts from the bottle. There is more to the nose than simple berries though – it has a delicious complexity coupling those berries with plums, currants and a touch of ‘earth’. The palate is ripe, juicily so, and rich in a medium-bodied style. Soft. Good length. Distinct apple edge to the those red berries. Alcohol 14%. Screwcap.
