9. Yering Station Pinot Noir-Yarra Yalley (2008)

« Prev Next » 9 of 24
Previously available for $12.99
This is fruity and stemmy on the nose with a delightful aromatic profile that blends sour cherry and raspberry jam with a hint of cinnamon and a handful of sage and bay leaves. Crisp on entry with nice, juicy acidity and stiff little tannins, this shows off early cherry pit, dried herb and old wood flavors before laying on some gentle cranberry and rhubarb elements. There's a touch of dry spice here, almost white peppery but not baking spices, and they extend on the moderately long finish, which shows good focus and a lovely hint of dried herb. This is understated yet remains lively and interesting. 87pts

  • 1042430BrugmanRose Gregory, you did a very nice job on locating and tasting these Pinot Noirs. I see many of them in my local stores and just can not conclude from the labels what I am suppose to expect from each individual wine. Your analysis has been helpful in guiding me to what I would like.
