Hawkes Ridge Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2013 $30 (4 stars)

One thing the RD9 district does supremely well, is grow great pinot noir. It’s where a large chunk of pinot is grown for some of New Zealand’s most famed sparkling wine bases. Julie and Douglas Haines have created a HUGE pinot noir here, with more meat on its bones than is typical, but it’s a honkingly spicy, earthy sip that I’m hoping you’ll love as much as I do. Maturing nicely indeed.
