Natalie's Score: 91/100
Cherry-berry fleshy ripe yet not heavy: zippy and vibrant with mouth-awakening vivaciousness. Love Tasmanian Pinot Noir, and buy it whenever I can... Cool climate but still ripe Pinot that's a fraction of the cost of French Burgundy. Pair with pork tenderloin.
Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, lamb in a red wine sauce, roasted pork loin, Tortiere, prime rib.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
All the way from Tasmania, Australia... A Pinot Noir with a mild nose of ripe strawberries, followed by a palate showing red currants, ripe strawberries, raspberries, slight forest floor, milk chocolate, a light touch of baking spices and vanilla. Dry balanced mouthfeel and a light red currant finish.

My first Tasmanian wine, and definitely not my last.
Name: Tamar Ridge Pinot
Producer: Tamar Ridge
Region/country: Tasmania, Australia
Grape varietal(s): Pinot Noir
Consumed: at home
Recommended by: happened upon it at the LCBO
Appearance: Light ruby red colour, thin on the edges.
Nose: Steak, leather, pepper, some sour cherries.
Taste: Earth, leather, meat, cigar, cedar. After decanting it for an hour, I had it with a cheese and tomato (and black pepper) savoury crepe, which brought out the sour cherry notes. Decanting it helped, I think. In contrast, with a selection of cheeses (white aged cheddar, Gruyere), the terroir dominated.
Finish: Long finish, sour cherries, leather, cigar, cedar.
Overall impression: Pinot Noir is not generally one of my favourite varietals, but, after tasting this one, I am interested in trying other Tasmanian wines (other than Shiraz...)
Value: 3 out of 5.
|The Pinot Noir grapes for this Australian red wine come from the winery's estate vineyards in the Tamar Valley on the island of Tasmania. Terrific varietal intensity. Finishes with fleshy plum. - Community Wine Reviews|
