Nautilus Estate Pinot Noir Marlborough 2012 14%
Generous rich and very inviting bouquet - Clive Jones more than gets Pinot Noir - he is an expert at capturing the heart and soul of Pinot Noir (gush). Dark red cherry and raspberry fruits laced with five spice oak, toasty with a full complement of Marlborough fruits. Great complexity and charm with personality and pinosity (gush again). On the palate - it all comes together with warmth, depth and complexity. The flavors of medium to dark red fruits with toasty vanilla oak spice and a mild savory layer make for a very smart wine overall. Can you tell that I like this wine! Medium++ length and finish a wine for decanting if serving tonight or cellaring for 5 years.
