Ostler Caroline’s Pinot Noir 2006

88+ points

Waitaki Valley, Otago, NZ. 13%

Dark wine. Dense and rich. Not charming. A masculine style of Pinot.

A bit dumb for a kiwi Pinot that’s 4 years old. I suspect it will emerge and deserve even higher points but to be honest I don’t have enough experience with NZ Pinot Noir and how they age so I could very well be wrong and this is all you will ever get. Hedge your bets either drink now or in 2-3 years time.
