 Tasted by redwave on 10/18/2014 & rated 90 points: a nice light pinot noir very flavorful, with berry taste. (424 views)
 Tasted by Martnmac on 2/5/2014 & rated 89 points: Lovely little pinot. Very subtle at first. Raspberry and light strawberry note. More traditional pinot nose. Really started working about an hour in. Came in strong then and galloped to the finish line. Double yum and three quarters. Will try another bottle!! (568 views)
 Tasted by neilemc on 11/20/2013 & rated 88 points: Compex nose: spicy red berries and plums, floral violet notes, and licorice. Not as complex on the palate but still cold from the winter cellar. It opens up with tart red berries, sweet spice, and chewy oak. Good varietal expression and the best pinot I've had from Tasmania. (656 views)
 Tasted by Weston3220 on 9/10/2013 & rated 90 points: Raspberry Lots of Acidity with that Crystalline fruit, very good, and pure.

Conc: Maybe not the 'most complex' but what it does well is that purity of fruit and thats saying a lot (811 views)

Nose: spicy red cherries, raspberries, hints of lemongrass

 Tasted by graemeg on 12/30/2012: Taste of Tasmania 12/13 (Hobart, Tasmania): {screwcap, 13.5%, A$30} Light cherry nose. Quite tart, acidic (youthful) palate, savoury and dry, almost crunchy, with dusty cherry fruit flavours. Light-medium body & tannin; medium length finish. Solid effort, wants a bit of time. And a bigger tasting sample… (744 views)
 Tasted by chatters on 8/29/2012: Regionality of Tasmanian Pinot Noir (Restaurant Arris, Cleveland Street, Sydney): Colour: medium ruby
Nose: Farmyard funk, red currant, strawberry, savoury back bone, meaty and spicy
Mouth: spiced rich red currant over strawberry notes…fruit carries on finish but then hot bitter note intrude.
Perhaps needs more time? (508 views)
 Tasted by chatters on 8/1/2012: Peter Bourne- 3 island Pinot Noir Taste off (Sydney): Colour: Ruby, medium intensity, bright, rapid tears
Nose: clean, developing, medium intensity, rubber red plum, leather, slight spice, slight farmyard funk, slight vanilla and cream and toast
Mouth: Medium plus acid, medium body, medium plus flavour intensity, medium alcohol, medium tannin that is grippy and course. Dry. Red plum and cherry, cream, slight leather and finishes bitter.
Out of balance (620 views)
 Tasted by graemeg on 1/15/2012: Tasmania Wineries Jan-12 (2) - Tamar Valley; 1/15/2012-1/19/2012 (Tasmania): {screwcap, A$33} Dark cherry and chocolate aromas, some rich cedary oak. Moderately intense. Palate has pleasing depth of black cherry fruit. The richness of the fruit doesn’t preclude a proper dry finish of medium length, despite the generally light-medium body-weight of the wine, nor the lightish tannins. Medium-high acid is a key component; and good balance along the tongue really helps the cause. Very good value for the price; a sound pinot that should repay some short-medium term cellaring (5-8 years). (883 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
