Mandala Prophet Pinot Noir 2006

Pinot noir on steroids. Or at least that was what I thought when I tried this very good wine from Mandala Wines in the Yarra Valley.

If you like the Giaconda fruit driven style of pinot noir, you will like this wine and have some spare change. A pronounced intensity expression of cherry, spice and bouquet garni. Medium length with a sweet fruitedness that can only be (new world) pinot noir. A frankly impressive offering from a little known producer. 88 points.

Price: $60
Abv: 13.5%
Tasted: November 2011
