Pinot Heaven - 2008 Plunkett Wines Pinot Noir Blackwood Ridge

This is, quite simply an astounding example of its type. Beautiful, delicate ruby red colour (strawberry pink at the rim).

Aroma of ripe fruit, Parma Violets, rich Christmas pud. Initially sweet, delicately spicy, intensely warming and incredibly long flavour that defines top notch New World Pinot Noir. A smoky finish with light tannins.

At 16% abv you have to be careful not to overdo it on this one. Perfect for a summer drinking red, but I would enjoy it equally well sitting by a warm fire in the winter. This would be a perfect accompaniment for summer parties, or for Christmas dinner.
