Top 100 Points
"#42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010 93 Points - Wine Spectator: Smooth and polished, weaving a hint of licorice into the huckleberry, raspberry and plum flavors. A wave of mineral character adds to the depth on the long, refined finish. Drink now through 2016."
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"With just 5% whole bunch ferment and one-third in French new oak, the delightful 2008 Te Muna Pinot Noir has well-defined nose with raspberry, strawberry and a touch of crushed stones and demonstrates far more clarity than Craggy's other Pinot Noir '08s. The palate is medium-bodied with firm but brittle tannins, slightly lower acidity than expected but with crisp cranberry and raspberry leaf towards the finish. This Pinot has delightful purity and sense of panache. Drink now-2018. "
