Dark cherries in the salad meet dark cherries.

If you love mid & dark, ripe fruits, spice, soft dry earth-dry gravel & stone, pronounced limestone, soft, fresh tobacco and cool climate acidity for days, spend $60-$65 on a Block 3 or 5 Pinot Noir. So good.

Both lettuces picked hours ago from my garden.

Prophets Rock

Home Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Classic Central Otago dark brooding character, but with more elegance than Gibbston Valley or Valli. The nose is all blue and black fruit, with a vein of cedar spice, Med-full bodied, complex, with a silky mouthfeel. Serious weight, but not heavy. A cross between the dark weight of Otago and a good Gevrey. Strong buy. — a month ago

If you do anything in your life, find a 6-7 yr old Felton Road Pinot or their Chardonnay at 3-4 yrs old. Decant it hours. The Chardonnay served at near room temperature. You will thank me. The fruit, complexity and acidity get my highest recommendation. It extraordinary Burgundy & style at a fraction of the price. Crossroads of new & old world.

Still room for growth here.

Pipeclay Terrace Pinot Noir 2013

Dragged home all the way from NZ. A nose of rich dark berries - very full across the palate with soft but present tannins long elegant finish. It’s soft colour belies it’s strength. Really fine wine! — 16 days ago
