Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2010

Well, it took me an extra day to fully enjoy it, also too in order to make vanish the clear sensations of the 2 pinots I drank just yesterday and the day before which were delicious
Unfortunately I keep comparing them
Day 1: Felton Rd was so much fleshier, even a little hot. I know it had to be different, but in the comparison it definitely lacked elegance, harmony and enjoyment. Though it had personality
Day 2:another wine, fully enjoyable, very defined, focus, pleasant. Not hot anymore. Still thousands of kms away from Burgandy, like it should be (but also so apart from others Central Otago pinots)
More than decent after taste

Calvert Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

This is 2015 vintage. I felt it has more tasty than 2013 and we can enjoy its complexity. But not too much. Good to meet Japanese cuisine, soy sauce based. @11000, nee Miura, 191210 — 2 days ago

Innocent Bystander

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017

I recently conducted an experiment...Wine.com 10% off of $99, an offering that does not present very often.

All wines needed to score 90 or above by Wine Spectator..except for the Burn Cottage PN all bottles were less than $20. My purchase... five bottles in total.

1). Burn Cottage Moonlight Race 2015. WS 91..
Most expensive $42.
2). Novellum Chardonnay 92 by JD..this was
Included to make the $99.
3). Innocent Bystander PN 2017. 92 by WS.
...will keep you posted on other two.

This wine is great for sub $20...blueberry...cherry..tea leaves.a soft herbal component and dried flowers or sage. This definitely beat the Burn Cottage in terms of complexity!

Record temperature set in Iowa today! 1° early am! WHAT!⛄🌨

Loveblock

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

Sunday night and tonight's wine is the 2018 Loveblock Pinot Noir from Central Otago, New Zealand.

On the nose there is strawberry, cranberry, cherry, cola, caramel, vanilla and a mineral dust soil component.

On the palate there is nice fruit, cranberry, cherry, raspberry, clove, herbs, mint and dusty soil.

This is a medium bodied wine that has a smooth mouth feel, medium + acidity with medium fine tannins that move right into a medium to long fresh fruit finish. Have a wonderful week ahead and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Block 5 Pinot Noir 2014

Sublime - so much better than first bottle 2 years ago. Garnet with a slight orange rim. Brooding nose of mushroom, red and black cherry, and wood spice. Some funk. Medium bodied. Super elegant and textural. Dark fruit, spicy plums, sour cherry. Super long with a final sweet note. Complex and powerful but incredibly light on its feet. Singing! — 8 days ago
