    September 1, 2019 - Medium ruby in color, this wine shows subtle hints of blackberry, raspberry and forest floor on the nose. The mouth feel is medium bodied with subtle tannins. The finish is noticeably short, suggesting this wine is fully mature. 14% abv.

    Purchased for $25US, this is an enjoyable wine that seems to be on its decline. Drink now.

    August 24, 2017 - 100% PN, planted in 1980s.

    Transparent, fresh garnet.

    Cranberry, cherry-favored cough syrup, Amaretto flavor.

    Definitely not a fruit forward in the New World sense but rather dominated by spices - nutmeg, cinnamon) with a hint of herbaceousness (think fennel, dill and the likes). Med plus acidity and med tannin.

    Not the style of Pinot Noir that I prefer. Objectively quite uninspiring. 86.

    January 21, 2017 - Our first Australian Pinot Noir. Pop and pour, consumed over three hours. Beautiful nose and palate of deep cranberry and earth with very soft tannins, satisfying acidity on the finish, and generally well balanced. But not a very complex wine, offering a merely one-dimensional experience. The fruit faded significantly by the third hour leaving a mostly earth on the palate.

    July 8, 2016 - Red cherry fruits, cocoa, chichory oak, brambles. Smooth, rich but light palate (yes really!), crisp acidity at finish. Fruits fades a little towards the back palate.

    May 7, 2016 - Sneaky Vineyard Tastings post-Justina+Lee Wedding! (Mornington Peninsula, Victoria): Raspberry, dark lolly, plum. Effusive perfume, white pepper, damp earth in rich concentration. Upfront savoury, meaty concentration, linear translucency. Long mineral finish, with hints spice. Precise, elegant structure.
