2005 42º S (Forty-Two Degrees South) Tasmania Pinot Noir

12.6% alc., $16. Part of the Hood Wines portfolio. Imported by Hathaway Trading Co., Inc., Ladera Ranch, CA. · The aromas are not terribly appealing featuring pungent herbs, coffee, roasted nuts and a whiff of alcohol. Ripe fruit tending toward raisin and root beer flavors. Very smoothly textured with soft tannins and a tangy finish. The flavors trump the aromas but nothing special here. Reviewed May 7, 2009
