Surveyor Thomson Pinot Noir 2006

I was torn with this wine.  On the one hand, it had great length on the palate: usually a good, indeed, frequently the only really trustworthy sign.  On the other hand, it just seemed too deeply coloured, with too much oak; almost non-varietal.  I detected aromas of olives, pepper and anise: words I usually write down for a South Australian wine.  That said, it still tasted good and that length was very evident.  85 points. (7/10)
