Peregrine Pinot Noir 2007, Central Otago

I have enjoyed a number of Pinot Noir from Peregrine Wines in the past but this one was sharper and more acidic than I expected. 

This is a very deep red (bordering on black) coloured wine that has a light plum aroma.  On the palatte, the plump body consists of plum and cherry flavours, a medium tail, and a wine that was not as soft as I expected.  The sharpness and acid did soften a little once aired. 

It was okay, but I do wonder if it would be better in another year.
