2003 Spy Valley Pinot Noir (New Zealand- Marlborough)

Spy Valley. New Zealand is on the map for Pinot Noir. Very juicy with a deep ruby red color. Black cherry aroma with a creaminess to the nose (if that’s possible) and texture. Hints of cedar and red licorice. Juicy and lush with a medium finish.

I’ve had the ’02 vintage of this wine and while it’s not as good as what I remember that to be, its still not bad and a solid B wine.

It was purchased for $32 at Chelsea Wine Vault but is generally not an easy wine to find around. However, at $32 I don’t think this is a great deal.
