Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

I really enjoyed this Pinot. It wasn’t a soft delicate fainting flower like you get from California nor was it an overpriced so complex you can’t even describe it wine from France. It was well muscled, well structured, good fruit and herbal mix flavors and a great expression of what Pinot could be in a different region. Just enough acid to keep it from being clean and sweet yet incredibly light on the tannins but still keeping the structure of a well muscled wine versus something that’s been doctored with too much wood. — 12 days ago

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2011

Got them to sell me an older vintage. Enjoyed this over two nights. This fucker was pure skittles on opening but calmed down and brought some balance to the table on day two. Very fruit driven and almost hard to imagine what it was like on release. That being said, I very much like what this thing is up to, and find it to be a very good value. — 25 days ago

Felton Road

Calvert Pinot Noir 2017

From the cellar door. Had the patience to sample over 3 nights and it’s been getting better and better. I initially found it closed and spicy and on night 3 it has reached a kind of harmony of fruit, spice, and soil. This is not a small wine but its generosity seems to have come honestly. I’m interested to see it integrate more and find more spine and flash but I think it’s wholly possible and likely. — a month ago
