Coopers Creek Marlborough Pinot Noir Gibsons Run 2006

I last reviewed this wine (same vintage) back in August 2010. Just over a year on, here's my thoughts.

Deep red in colour this wine has a beautiful plum, cherry and berry bouquet. Packed with plum and berry flavour and earthy characteristics it also has an acidity that I feel is slightly on the high side. It is quite a dry Pinot Noir, which I quite like and it has minimal tannins. I'm not particularly enjoying it now and given that I wasn't particularly taken with this wine in August 2010, time has not done it any favours and I do wonder if it would have been better its more youthful days.
