*2009 Cobblestone Te Muna Pinot Noir
Cobblestone Vineyards Te Muna Pinot Noir, Martinborough, New Zealand 2009
This is a full-bodied wine with completely soft tannins and relatively high (14.9%) alcohol, which impart a round, ample feel in the mouth. Lush cherry fruit is complemented by hints of beet greens and slightly bitter coffee or chocolate
The pursuit of Pinot perfection took us far from our California home base to the remote reaches of the South Pacific and the stunningly beautiful nation of New Zealand. We discovered a small and exceptional property along Te Muna Road, an especially remarkable terrace in the celebrated Pinot Noir village of Martinborough. Te Muna is Maori for ‘special’ or ‘secret place,’ and this Pinot Noir is the proudly bottled culmination of our lofty endeavor.
