Saint Clair Family Estate

Saint Clair Family Estate 2011 Pinto Noir Marlborough 13.5%
Very light ruby appearance, purple hues
N: Light and lifted bright light red fruits. Pinosity fruits of strawberry and raspberry and red cherry; then a vanillin toasted oak note - quite gentle overall.
3 Stars

P: Reflected on the palate with medium+ intensity - plenty of light red fruit flavors; the oak is very light as are the tannins. A drink now style, but will reward through 2013 as well. Dry with a medium finish.
3 Stars
