Paringa Estate 2009 The Paringa Pinot Noir

Made from small quantities of the best fruit possible from Paringa Estate on the Mornington Peninsula, and only made in years when wine quality reaches a required level of excellence, the Paringa is the flagship of Lindsay McCall's range of much-lauded pinots. It's a wine on the more macho side of the pinot spectrum with 14% alcohol and spice and dark cherry on the nose, leading to ripe dark fruit and savoury undertones on a palate that boasts extremely impressive architecture and tremendous length. This is full on, even at four years of age, and I'd recommend giving it another three or four years in the cellar to enjoy at its best. $90.
