Palliser Estate Pencarrow Pinot Noir 2008

This wine had a most unusual aroma: it bore a more than passing resemblance to the dust that flys off the broom when I sweep our garage.  With time in the glass, some herbs also became apparent.  The palate, remarkably, had a similar dry dust character.  I'm afraid I just didn't really like this wine, and have not to date tasted a pinot noir resembling it.  Maybe it was a bad bottle.  75 to 76 points.
