Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2008 Pinot Noir gives a pale ruby color and aromas of warm raspberries and strawberries plus a musky/mushroomy/damp leaves undercurrent. Crisp, light to medium bodied, it has soft silky tannins and a medium-long finish. Drink it now through 2013." (10/10)

Product Description:

WINE:
"All of the fruit is from vineyards in the Rapaura District of the Marlborough river valley. Family owned and operated, this 'grower' family turned to winemaking 1992. Mostly stainless steel with a few parcels aged in used French oak." -Importer

WINERY:
"Cairnbrae is a boutique winery producing quality white wines in the favored Rapaura district of Marlborough, New Zealand, neighbouring the well known Cloudy Bay and Corbans Stoneleigh vineyards. After being established in 1980 and supplying grapes to negociants for several vintages, Cairnbrae started producing wine under their own label in 1992. The results have been extremely highly regarded since."

"Cairnbrae's wines have earned an outstanding reputation in part due to the terroir of the Rapaura district. Here the terrain is flat with slight undulations; the deep river gravel subsoil and varying depths of fertile river silt provide perfect drainage, conducive to the successful growing of grapes and to bringing out the truest characteristics of Kiwi fruit."-Importer
