August 2015 update: Still quite good, but too sweet, with pronounced notes of raspberry, cherry, and cranberry, along with earth, beet, and black pepper underlying the fruit. Quite clean and zesty, a simple but satisfying pleasure.

August 2014: A fairly light-coloured Pinot that, in some fundamental ways, is exactly what a good, solid Pinot (particularly from New Zealand) is meant to be, with perky aromas and flavours of sour cherry and raspberry backed up by pronounced earthy, spicy notes; juicy at first, with good tannic weight and a nice finish; nothing spectacular, but admirably balanced.
