2006 Mt. Difficulty The Roaring Meg Central Otago Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $17. Named after a local streamrich in history and character. From several vineyards. Aged 10 months in French oak. Mt. Difficulty’s second label. · Nicely oaked black cherries, herbs, allspice, candy apple and warm oatmeal cookies on the nose, dancing and changing constantly in the glass. Very nicely composed with rick dark red berries complimented by oak toast. Smooth and clean with fine grained tannins. A very satisfying drink that I preferred over the more expensive bottling.
