The 2009 Villa Maria Cellar Selection Marlborough Pinot Noir, a blend from Wairau and Awatere Valleys that was aged over the winter on lees in French Barriques; has charming aromas of clove, faint smoked meat, cranberry and pomegranate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; balanced with good acidity, soft to refined tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a medium to long finish. Sip this one in a presence of good company; drink now – 2020. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted Jan/14 at dinner at Rosewater Supper Club tasting Villa Maria wines with winemaker Josh Hammond http://grapeselections.com/villa-maria-dinner/
