Sealed in screwcap, 13.2% alcohol.

Smoky red cherry, mocha, raspberry, a touch of stalk and some cedar in the background of the nose. The palate shows a lovely balance between savoury elements and fruit sweetness. A medium level of flavour intensity with well integrated tannins and acid leading into a lingering finish.

I think it is drinking wonderfully well now and is probably around its peak between now and 2008. This is a serious Pinot Noir but given that it is available under $20AUD, it is a seriously good deal as well. The current release, 2005 is even better!

Score: 89/100 Drink: 2007-2008
