2005 Hanging Rock Kilfara Pinot Noir. Victoria, Australia.

Despite the age, its still lively on the nose; crushed red fruits, red cherries and some raspberries; bright, some floral tones, with cassis / liquer-like edge to it. Its big for a Pinot, and probably benefited from the aging. Palate is juicy, feels rather extracted and hot; fat acidity, but rather rasping, some tannic structure left. A very atypical Pinot; was strange when I bought it three years ago and its still strange now..
