BK La Bombe Pinot Noir 2009

Most Pinots from Australia are built to drink now with the possibility of ageing them for a few years in the bottle. You now see the best ones can take 5 years with ease. However this one is built for enjoyment now.

This is very dark with aromas of roasted meat mixed with dark cherry and dark plum juice with a smoky sweet oak character coming through.  The wine is rather big for a Pinot but I find that I like it due to the ease that the flavours entice me back for another sip. You could give this to someone that loves Shiraz and they would be comfortable drinking this.  The structure is really good with light tannins sitting underneath the favours on a very good length palate.
