The 2005 Vavasour Pinot Noir is a deep garnet color and shows aromatic cherry and spice on the nose. The concentrated palate exhibits
rich dark cherry flavors with a long, soft tannin finish. This wine can be enjoyed now and over the next 3 to 4 years.
"Right now this wine presents itself as being rather light and lacking intensity, but it does have some pretty black cherry fruit and intriguing spice notes, and it should fill out a bit and put on weight over the next year or two. Finishes clean and long, with mild peppery notes and slightly dusty tannins."
