Palliser Estate Pinot Noir 2006
Deep red colour. Ripe intense red and dark berry fruit aromas and subtle oak. The taste is of concentrated ripe red and dark fruits and soft fine grained tannins. In the mid palate the fruit sweetness is seductive and the taste impression finishes with fine texture and long persistence of pinot noir flavours. While drinking well at release it has the concentration and structure to reward cellaring for a year or three.
