2008 Elk Cove Pinot Noir Mt. Richmond....$41.99

"Smooth and silky, delivering a root beer-like sassafras and anise character weaving through the blackberry, cherry, and spice flavors with transparency and vibrancy. Picks up some cream and tobacco as the finish lingers. Best from 2012 through 2018." Wine Spectator (May 19, 2010)

New Zealand Super Value
The Wine Advocate
Rated 91/100

2008 Sherwood Pinot Noir....$11.99
The wonderful 2008 Pinot Noir has a lovely cranberry and raspberry leaf nose with superb definition. The palate is very well crafted with fine tannins, well judged acidity allowing the joyous fruit to really express themselves: raspberry, a touch of blueberry and dark cherry. Given the price, this is exceptional value and comes highly recommended. Bravo!
