91pointsFramingham 2017 Nobody's Hero Pinot Noir (Marlborough)

This vintage of top producer Framingham's irreverent “everyday drinking” label is another winner. It bursts with bright red-currant and cherry fruit, cinnamon, cloves, cracked pepper and drying violets with a savory earthy undertone. The palate is plush but neatly packaged with savory, focused tannins and crunchy berry fruit. The spicy French oak does show on both the nose and the palate but it adds rather than detracts. Drink this young and slightly chilled as a light alternative to charred barbecue fare. Christina Pickard
