Forrest Estate Marlborough Pinot Noir

Forest ranks among the most reliable of Marlborough’s long-standing pinots, and in a world of escalating pinot prices, it represents refreshing value. The 2010 is a lively and elegant pinot of red cherry and strawberry fruit, notes of mixed spice, anise and violets. Finely textured tannins complete a refreshingly balanced style. $23 at Wine Box Warehouse.
