06 Porter Creek Estate Pinot Noir $38 ☺☺☺ 

When I first tasted this in 2009 it struggled to give up much on the nose however the underlying fruit was solid and the tannic structure also firm. Time has been kind to this wine and it now has a beautiful full nose of ripe cherries and mineral earthy undertones. It opens up beautifully in the glass and rewards patience.
