Bellvale Pinot Noir 2007

Bellvale's 2007 Gippsland pinot noir had an aroma of quite pungent cherries, which was initially very attractive, but with time in the glass revealed a baked character.  The palate had some plum notes, but also a burnt/smoky flavour that I struggled with.  James Halliday appears to have given it a 94.  78 points.
