Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2005, Central Otago

home_strip1 Unscrewing the cap of a 2005 Wooing Tree Pinot Noir from Central Otago the first thing I noticed was a magnificent cherry aroma that was released.

Once in the glass, this accentuated the cherry, but I then smelt a strong aroma that I attribute to alcohol and Jane also got leather.  The alcohol aroma dissipated over time.

This beautiful looking ruby red coloured wine is lighter than I expected for a 2005.

This is a big wine with quite a bit of complexity, well balanced, few tannins, a little bit of acid and remarkably smooth.  A delight to drink.
