Drinking Tonight - 2012 Black Poplar Block Pinot Noir, Pisa Range Estate

I was in a Pinot mood tonight, so I opted for a bottle of this.

2012 Black Poplar Block Pinot Noir, Pisa Range Estate
A fine, complex, spicy nose with notes of wild strawberries, liquorice, moist forest floor and a hint of chocolate bisquits. Very, very good. Cooked root vegetables. A very fine sweetness to the fruit. Dark roses. This is fine.
The taste is young, finely tuned and yummy with a lovely strawberry fruit and additional notes of liquorice, dried rose petals, Asian spices and forest floor. A very fine acidity. Medium bodied with a lovely elegance. A great drink tonight and I would venture for the coming 6+ years.
