Paringa Estate Peninsula Shiraz 2006

I started writing notes on this Paringa Estate wine, thinking that my tasting notes looked more appropriate to a shiraz than a pinot noir.  Closer inspection of the bottle of course revealed that I was in fact drinking shiraz and had wrongly assumed that Paringa = pinot noir.  Embarassment saved (well sort of), here are my thoughts: this wine wasn’t bad.  It had an aroma of herbs and stalks, while the palate had notes of plums, pepper, graphite and crushed rocks with evident acidity.  83 points.
