Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir 2001

Though past its best, the 2001 vintage of Bass Phillip's Premium Pinot Noir was probably, just, the better of the 1999 and the 2000, which it was tasted alongside.  A somewhat opulent and promising aroma of cherries wafted from the glass.  On the palate though, there was some trouble.  The length was actually quite good, very good in fact, but there was also a slight vinegary quality, verging on nutty and oxidative.  84? points (6.9/10).

Abv: 12.8%
Price: Current auction price is around $150
