Nobilo Icon Pinot Noir 2013

Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some light red along with some varietal rustic notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice rustic notes that linger nicely in the mouth backed by some pepper, earthy notes along with some dryness and tannins. Quite nice. I would give it an 88 or so.

From the LCBO web site:
Nobilo Icon Pinot Noir 2013 — VINTAGES#: 66803
STYLE – Medium-bodied & Fruity
Marlborough is one of New Zealand’s sunniest and driest regions, and it’s these conditions that play a large role in creating the fruity expressions of Pinot Noir the region is renowned for. The 2013 Nobilo Icon offers aromas of red cherry and red raspberry along with touches of oak, plum and clove. In the mouth it is well rounded and long with good fruit and nicely handled oak. An enjoyable and appealing wine from top to bottom. (VINTAGES panel, Aug. 2014) $24.75
Release Date:May 16, 2015 Alcohol/Vol 14.0% Made in: Marlborough, New Zealand By: Nobilo Vintners Sugar Content:8 g/L Sweetness Descriptor: XD – Extra Dry
