Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir

Such are the heights to which Ata Rangi has ascended that even its second wine is as lofty as the first wine of many estates. Impressive cherry berry fruit purity, exotic spice, anise and violet themes are commendable, but it’s a confident, fine tannin profile and great persistence that elevate this release to a new level of sophistication and longevity. $28 at Wine Box Warehouse.
