Brancott Reserve Pinot Noir 2005
Floral nose. Some strawberry, but over all, it's a heavy, meaty and earthy Burgundian palate.

Brancott Pinot Noir Reserve Winemaker's notes: Color: Deep garnet red. Aromas: The wine shows fragrant wild berry aromas, dark plum, a hint of tobacco and fine integrated oak toast. Palate: The palate also shows these dark berry fruits and exhibits a mouth-filling, ripe fruit sweetness. Soft, supple tannins give this wine excellent mouth-feel. Serving Suggestions: Porcini or field mushroom risotto or pasta. Grilled rare venison or grilled ostrich. Slow-cooked rabbit, hare or wild fowl stews with winter vegetables. Duck confit. Cellaring: An elegant but complex, fruit-driven wine which may be cellared for up to six years.
Clean raspberry flavors infuse this simple, juicy pinot noir. For a burger, grilled rare.
Lithe and supple, with fine intensity to black pepper, red currant and black plum notes. Fresh herb accents, cedary oak and a tangy structure shape the finish. Drink now through 2009.
