09 James MacPhail Rayes Hill Pinot Noir ($59) ☺☺☺☺

Another hit from the MacPhail stable. If Coca Cola ever brought out a strawberry flavour then this wine would have a  perfect description. Predominantly Pommard clone hence the strawberry flavours but the acidity and tannins suggest this will be a long keeper. The only problem is that it's very good right now and do you have the patience or mental strength to cellar it?
