Wine of the week: Sherwood Estate's Marlborough 2009 Pinot Noir

August 2, 2012 

Sherwood Estate's Marlborough 2009 Pinot Noir is an OMG wine experience! Seriously, I have no idea how the Sherwoods can make a pinot of this caliber and ship it to the top of the world for just $20. This is one of those rich-style pinots. There's lots of nose and plenty of thick, black fruit -- nothing wimpy here. From New Zealand, this family-owned estate controls everything from dirt to bottle. Bring one home tonight and make your taste buds happy.
