Rahona Valley Pinot Noir 2006

Rahona Valley Pinot Noir 2006

A taster. From Red Hill in the Mornington Peninsula. Seems odd to find a 2006 wine available now, but perhaps a right-minded person is keeping wines back until they are ready to drink. Quite big and glossy, some pine needles and dry earth, not overly fruity, but it does show lightly stewed strawberries and red cherries, and at times brown sugar and rhubarb. The palate is nicely weighted, red fruits and a dried talks, though there seems to be a bit too much alcohol, and a trace of acetone does seem to contribute to the impression of thinness. Sealed under screwcap. 85 points. 14.3% abv. $25 RRP
