Wine of the Week: 2007 Mountford 'Liaison' Pinot Noir

What a lovely expression of Pinot Noir from

New Zealand's

Mountford estate. Elegant and smooth, this New World Pinot carries the taste of Santa Rosa plums and sweet Asian spices. The scent jumps right out of the glass — sandalwood, and something leafy and delicate.

In this weather, chill it just a bit and serve with roast chicken, sweetbreads or roast leg of lamb.
