Odyssey Magnum Tasting – Marlborough Pinot Noir 2003

Today I tasted the Odyssey Marlborough Pinot Noir 2003 in Magnum and for those of you who have this wine I wrote the following tasting note.

Lovely strawberry fruit notes on the nose with a hint of  leather and very subtle blue cheese.The palate has sweet ripe tones with acid in balance and firm yet refined tannins. The wine has evolved beautifully from the robust wine it was in its youth. The cherry/plum has evolved into strawberry and the tannins whilst still present are  elegant and have greatly softened.

If you have an occasion’ to drink to’ this year, this would be a great time to pop the cork…9 years old.
