Julicher Estate 99 Rows Pinot Noir 2008

This is the best pinot noir I've tried in a long while.  It has an aroma of stewed plums and cherries, with a similar character on the palate, marked by excellent (I mean really excellent) length.  An outstanding wine, though it may not keep for more than a few years, as it appears to be in its prime right now.  95 points.

Abv: 13.5%
Price: $32.95 (from http://www.nzwineonline.com.au)
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
