Bell Hill Old Weka Pass Road Pinot Noir 2001

Bell Hill Old Weka Pass Road Pinot Noir 2001

I bought this a couple of years ago after trying it at a pinot tasting organised by Stew from the Wine Emporium. At the time it looked like a tight and well-structured wine that would age quite well, but unfortunately time hasn’t been kind. On the nose, smoky red cherries and old woody spices. The palate is mellowed, with liqueured red cherries and earth, broad and to be honest looking a bit tired. Pleasant enough, but drink up!
