Red and black fruits, floral, spice, and whole bunch tang (herbs, smoke). Touched by oak for sure, but almost invisible. Snappy tannins and an impressive finish. Definitely a wine to look out for.

Few things to note:

- This was the better whole bunch Pinot on the table. Could be the extra year or perhaps more oak in the vinification - the wine looks more complete that Nicolas'.
- V16 was a warm year and I think this worked to the advantage of Cobaw Ridge's vineyard. It's typically cooler than Bindi's, which didn't exactly nail the vintage imo. I have found some of Cobaw Ridge's wines too green in the past (especially their popular Lagrein), but this was spot on.
- Picture taken from Wine and Country, which is an awesome shop in Daylesford btw!

Iron filings, umami, and blood. Elegant, Complex, but not without weight and purity. Special. With Bomber Reilly

Beautiful tagine pruny/spicy nose. Smoke, undergrowth, plumb, but slightly hollow in the middle palate. Medium bodied and not a big structure but great grip. So long. Really good and unique.
