Number 63 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!
Maturations was initially on light lees in new and seasoned French oak, then racked and returned to oak for extended oak maturation.
The color is garnet red with purple tinges. The bouquet displays cherry, plum and spice, enhanced by subtle oak. The palate possess rich and savory berry fruits, enhanced by velvet-like tannins and a lingering mid-palate texture. Medium term cellaring for 2-4 years will add complexity and enhance mouth feel.

Nice Pinots are coming out of Aussie and NZ! We have been drinking a lot of wine from Sticks. The winemaker does a great job of highlighting the fruit in each varietal. This Pinot is a fine example of the "no frills" approach.
Soft, velvety on the palate. Great PN character. Easy to drink.

My first impression of this wine was that of raisins forward. It's softness reminded me of a Rioja. As it opened, I really started to enjoy this wine. Somewhere in the middle palate, I detected layers of tangerine, and berry fruits. A lovely wine. I will be featuring this wine in an all Australian wine dinner on Feb. 7th. Thank you for a lovely wine! Helene Scholler-Altevogt
