Rockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013 $39 ★★★★Rockburn Pinot Noir NV

This’ll probably sound really weird, but I love that this pinot smells like moss-covered tree trunks in the rain, lush and earthy, with a layer of black tea, cherry and baking spices.  Fresh and juicy to drink, with pleasantly drying tannins, this well-crafted pinot has lovely fruit density and suppleness on the finish.
