Matua Pinot Noir 2005
Wine EnthusiastThis New Zealand outpost of Foster's Wine Estates has turned in an impressive performance at an enviable price point. Cola, sassafras, vanilla and plum shadings all merge gracefully together in this full-bodied, seriously endowed Pinot that should drink well now and over the next few years.
Wine SpectatorCedary oak underscores cola, black cherry and leathery flavors. Tart, earthy structure dries the finish. Drink now through 2008.
