Erath Estate Selection Pinot Noir 2011
Decadent wafts of cherry strudel with vanilla icing mingle with dark berries, baking spice and the faintest hint of beach-fire smokiness. A silky mouthful of boysenberry, cherry cola, cr̬me brul̩e and sandalwood glides evenly across the palate as supple tannins offer a pleasingly prolonged finish
