BIRD Pinot Noir 'Big Barrel' 2012

The 2012 Bird 'Big Barrel' Pinot Noir is a fantastic effort from this winery. This Marlborough Dayvinleigh Vineyard Pinot Noir was aged in 900L oak barrels prior to bottling. The wine opens with aromatics of cherry cola, ripe strawberry and hints of guava puree. On the mid-palate there are flavors of strawberry jam, cranberries, pomegranate seed, and cola. Focused and lively, this will cellar beautifully well into the next decade. (Best 2016-2024) - December, 2016 (OB)
