2005 Pirie Estate Tasmania Pinot Noir
14.0% alc., 800 cases, $35, screw cap. Imported by American Estates Wines Inc., Philadelphia, PA. · The nose is quite alluring drawing you in to a pleasing perfume of cherries, berries, new oak and a touch of celery stalk. Very tasty earth-kissed dark fruits with gentle tannins and perfectly matched tannins and acidity. Very well crafted and a real surprise. This is a unique wine to stock up on for summertime.
