    ***** [Geoff Kelly Wine Reviews 2012. www.geoffkellyreviews.com]. 2009 Jurassic Ridge Montepulciano  [18.5/20 points] 

    Good ruby and velvet, some carmine.

    Bouquet is simply beautiful montepulciano, fragrant,  darkly floral, intensely berried, slightly spicy, but unlike so many of the wines from this grape's homeland, this one is perfectly clean.  Palate is soft rich and velvety, the oak in good new world proportion, the flavours long and dry. This is benchmark montepulciano, a grape which is doing exceptionally well on Waiheke Island.

    Cellar 5 – 12, maybe 15 years. GK 10/12
