The 2008 Brokenwood Pinot Noir is a mid-weight Pinot Noir. Good depth of color and youthful purple tints are evident. Great complexity to the aromas. Lifted red cherry over sweet earthy savory characters with a touch of oak sweetness. The balance is aided by ripe tannins giving a lingering finish. The will mature further, although enjoyable as a fresh, zippy young Pinot Noir.
