Mohua Central Otago 2012 Pinot Noir

Mohua Central Otago 2012 Pinot Noir, $14.39-$17.99, 86 points, poured a bright pomegranate/cranberry red with an obligatory clear rim.
The nose opened a bit vegetative, but hints of clove and red cherry were okay.
The body on this Pinot was barely medium, and carried good acidity with mild tannin.
Cola flavor with a slightly sweet red cherry and a hint of marzipan were good.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, gentle spice notes, and a well integrated 13% alcohol.
This post is almost as much about the "Simply Delish" pumpkin bread as it is about the wine; I've tasted this with a couple of Pinot Noir red wines and have been blown over by how well they paired with it and some spread butter. I bought mine at Hannaford's Super Market in Bedford.
