Burn Cottage

2018 Burn Cottage Moonlight Race Pinot Noir...$39.99
This has attractive aromas of fresh red cherries, wild herbs, roses and forest wood that lead to a palate that carries ripe, soft red plums, some crunchy pomegranate tang and mellow tannins. Drink now.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling
93 points | $45 | 350 cases imported 
Appealing for its density and delineated structure up front, yet notes of kirsch, raspberry and five-spice powder are generous and plush, with hints of cedar, gunpowder and dried lavender appearing on the long finish. Drink now through 2036. —M.W.

2018 Burn Cottage Central Otago Pinot Noir...$61.99
This is a very attractive and gently complex pinot that sits in a red-cherry and red-plum zone, laced with spicy, gently herbal and floral elements, too. The palate has a very composed, fresh red-cherry center with spice and light peppery nuances. Plenty of bright acidity lifts the finish. So fresh. Drink or hold.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
95 points | $65 | 500 cases imported 
Generous and pure, with maraschino cherry, raspberry puree and red licorice notes at the core on a plush, velvety frame, expanding into details of sandalwood, white truffle, rosemary and cardamom. Drink now through 2036. —M.W.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Spectator
