Daniel Brennan is serious talent where winemaking is concerned, a young up-and-comer from the US carving a kiwi living creating wine in Hawke’s Bay and Martinborough.  It’s his background in the rock n roll business that’s responsible for the name Decibel, but this pinot noir is cool and calm in the background as opposed to being a mosh pit in your mouth.  With earthy spice and mushroom notes edged with baked cherry, raspberry and gentle juicy tannins – it’s a really interesting style.
