Phillip Island Vineyard The Nobbies Pinot Noir 2000

This wine is still alive, and fascinating

This wine is still alive, and fascinating. There's a little bit of strawberry remaining in every sip, but it's everything else about it that drew me in and had me captivated. The nose is subdued, reminded me of Keen's curry powder, and of visiting my uncle's cowsheds as a youngster. The palate is spicy and earthy, also with prosciutto, leather, very dark chocolate, some mushroom, fine tannins. There is a lot more going on that I cannot put in to words. As I said earlier, I found this wine captivating, not immediately appealing, but I very much enjoyed attempting to unravel what it has become. However it won't be to everyones taste, perhaps just for those who are curious about how an aged pinot noir can taste, and/or those who are in to forest and farmyard in their wine.
