More information on wine critics and ratings
A myriad of mulberry, wild thyme and enticing savoury undertones are interwoven with layers of ripe summer berries.The palate displays both generosity and restraint, with plump and supple tannins that are supported by an amalgam of summer ripened plums, dark cherry and a freshness reminiscent of ripe red fruits. The finish is long, the wine showing lovely fruit purity and definition.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 94 Points (2016)
Generous, stylish, spicy and expressive, with plump blackberry, clove and plum flavors wrapped around a thread of black licorice. The texture is smooth and lush, while the tannins provide appealing traction on the finish, where a fresh green sage note comes in. Drink now through 2033.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2016)
Delicate notes of sous-bois, beets, raspberries and cherries all emerge on the nose of the 2016 Moonlight Race Pinot Noir, which blends fruit from Burn Cottage's own estate vineyard with a couple of nearby sites. It's medium-bodied, silky and easy-drinking on the palate, with a soft tea-like, herbal note on the finish.

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 96 Points (2015)
Moonlight Race is a blend of grapes from Burn Cottage Vineyard (35% ), Northburn Vineyard (35% ) and (30%) Mark ll Vineyard, with a mix of clones in each. 22.5% whole cluster. Similar in style to the regular Burn Cottage label but with more sweet fruit and a sappy influence adding complexity to berry, oak and floral flavours. A subtle and beguiling wine with finely pitched structure that allows access now while assuring a promising future.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2015)
This regional blend of a suite of parcels has an attractive red and dark cherry fruit core, with well-placed spicy oak, pleasingly grainy youthful tannins and a long fresh finish that is accented by concentrated cherry fruit flavors

This is 'Super Tuscan' which means they tend to use more international grape varieties in their wines. This wine in particular is made Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is a very rich, complex wine, with dark berry fruit flavours and hints of tobacco, chocolate and spice.
