Kumeu River Village 2004 Kumeu Pinot Noir

As pale as a red/orange wine can be and still be distinctly not a Rosé. Just a bit darker than Schumaker-era Ferrari red.

Black cherry smell with leather, maybe freshly-turned loam.

Black cherry flavor with pleasant but (I find it) difficult to characterize organics.

Simple but satisfying, smells and tastes better than it looks. Not a great buy for $16.99 but not a terrible one either.
