Huia 2004 Pinot Noir

Having had a good New Zealand Pinot Noir during our Sweden trip I was curious about them and had to have another one tonight. I went to BevMo and found the Huia Marlborough 2004 Pinot Noir. It turned out to be a really good bottle as well, but a bit different in style with a little less fruit and some heavier tannins.
I served it with a Snow Pea and Green Curry Chicken dish that I made for dinner (dinner dish was already planned before the wine made it's way home), and it was not to bad of a match. The nose revealed cherry and black berry with a hint of tobacco. On the palate you'll find a nice balance of tannins and red cherries and medium dark berries with a long pleasant finish that accents the tannins. Find it at BevMo or at http://www.wine-searcher.com/ from $19.99.
This is a wine I will have again.

Sounds great! I hope I can find it here in NYC. I have been very curious about all this talk of the pinots from New Zealand. You had me at tabacco and tannin structure. I am in.
