Coney Pizzicato Pinot Noir 2008
Coney Pizzicato Pinot Noir has a dense dark plum hue. No hint of wet year translucence here. According to the founding fathers of Martinborough Pinot Noir 2006 enjoyed the friendliest weather for twenty years. The nose is typically Pinot, redolent of sweet berries with a hint of vanillin. The palate has beautifully integrated concentration with the wine already showing a harmony truly worthy of its elegant treble clef logo. At this early stage in it's development Pizzicato shows elements of blackcurrant and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel has the silky, unctuous quality required of serious Pinots. Tannins are ripe and gentle yet with the necessary persistence contributing to a long warming finish.
