Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir

Waipara is a pinot noir hotbed to watch in New Zealand, and Pegasus Bay is one of its star performers. With vines now a quarter-century of age, this is a proper pinot noir of structure and longevity. Refined red cherry fruit, wood spice and subtle nuances of dried herbs carry seamlessly through a long finish of silky yet commanding tannins. $47 at Kemeny’s.
