Ninth Island Pinot Noir 2004
Sorry Boogaman 9th Island is a second label and (in my opinion) not a good example of Tasmanian Pinot. For around the same price try Lake Barrington Pinot, if you can get it there. It has mouth watering acidity and good fruit.Add winemaker's notes

External Reviews for Ninth Island Pinot Noir
Light and fragrant, with a wild strawberry tinge to the cherry and light herb flavors, lingering on the refreshingly lively finish. Drink now.
Bright, juicy and lively with raspberry, light cherry and floral aromas and flavors that remain refreshing and appealing through the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2009.
On the firm side, with very pretty floral berry flavors, finishing with a touch of white pepper as the flavors get a jolt of crisp acidity. Best after 2005.
Proof that Tasmania has what it takes to succeed in the export market. The wine's feel is woolly; it's not superfull on the palate, but it's an enjoyable New World-style Pinot with solid plum, black cherry and mineral components.
This little Tasmanian Devil (actually, the wine is named after an island in the Bass Straight, which is a penguin refuge) shows backberries, plums and a hint of truffle with a rich perfume of violets and a velvety finish of toasty French oak.
Lovely stuff, bright and polished, a refined Pinot Noir brimming with berry, cherry and subtle mineral and spice flavors, lingering effortlessly on the lively finish. Drink now through 2007.
