2013 Stoneleigh Marlborough Pinot Noir

imageMarlborough Pinot can impress…but not in this particular case.

Smells glossy, prickly and sweet with any evidence of polish absent on the palate. Pointy acid, thin, mawkish. Plums, raspberries, nail-polish, chocolate and spice. Sappy green and herbal edges. Lacks cohesion, feels hollow, finishes empty. Enough to please a a certain audience but no more. 83
