SOHO Havana Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015 $38 (5 stars)

This wine won the trophy for Best New Zealand Pinot Noir at the International Wine Challenge in London last week.  How appropriate that a pinot named after one of the sexiest capital cities in the world, also has a distinct lift of tobacco leaf and cigar box on the nose and palate.  Combine this wine nuances of baked cherry, black olive powder and the lushness of forest floor leaf litter and you’ve got an extremely complex, spice-driven, earthy pinot that’s the equivalent of an exotic holiday in a bottle.

Prepare a crock pot of Cuban roast pork with black beans.  Delish
