Hailing form the North Island, this is a confounding wine that seems to want to be better than it is. It's foxxy and funky in the nose, even a little burnt, yet the candy-like black-cherry palate is fairly pleasant. While hardly perfect, there's enough true Pinot character here to make it worthwhile.
