2005 Voss Estate Martinborough Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., $38. Imported by Meadowbank Estates, Alexandria, VA.I cannot find any reviews of this wine on the winery’s website to buttress my impression. Tasted twice. · Very dark crimson. Port-like aromas with a hint of oak, earth, forest floor, char and smoke. A wood-driven wine fueled by overripe, raisiny fruit. Dark, dry and tannic and surprisingly poor from this well known producer. Reviewed October 13, 2008
