PINOT NOIR


New Zealand

Nikola Nobilo founded this iconic winery in 1943, and in the ensuing decades helped lead the move from hybrid grapes to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in New Zealand. Nikola passed away in 2007, but his legacy of producing high quality wines at great value lives on. The Icon Pinot Noir is made with 100% Marlborough-grown fruit sourced from three estate vineyards. Five days of cold-soaking promotes extraction of dark berry fruit flavor without harsh tannins. It's a sumptuous, well-balanced wine with fresh minerality and just the right amount of acidity.

Suggested Cut: Fine-grained New York Strip

Rating: 14/20

Price: $22
