2018 Mt. Beautiful Pinot Noir, North Canterbury, New Zealand (750ml)
As a personal favorite of Mt. Beautiful's owner David Teece, it's incredibly important for this Pinot Noir to showcase the best aspects of the varietal. Subtlety is the secret inside this wine. It begins with sophisticated floral fragrances of sweet spice and ripe soft red berry fruits, while showcasing an elegant medium-weight palate that features fragrant strawberry and bramble fruit, earthiness, and subtle tannins.
Elegant, seamless, bright and fresh, with raspberry, cherry and cranberry flavors, set on a sleek, smooth frame. Offers a crisp finish and details of dried rose petal and white pepper.

An attractive and fresh, red-cherry and brambly, herbal nuance here with a toasty-oak layer that also adds chocolate to the mix. The palate is fresh with a soft, choc-berry finish.

The 2018 Mt. Beautiful Pinot Noir is a charming example of the grape variety. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits alluring aromas and flavors of dried earth, savory spices, and red fruit. Enjoy it with grilled salmon fillets. (Tasted: June 7, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
