2015 Felton Road "Calvert" Pinot Noir Central Otago (Biodynamic)

SKU #1284970 96 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Reasonably light in colour but there is nothing light about the aroma and flavour of this elegant and quite complex pinot noir. It’s a bright, high energy wine that’s rippling with light. A nice mix of berry and cherry and savoury, herb and baked earth flavours with a subtle mineral influence. Good now, better later. Inner quote mark

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The crisp cranberry and pomegranate flavors are juicy and vibrant, with details of green tea, fresh earth and white pepper. Cohesive and harmonious on the long finish. Drink now through 2030 Inner quote mark

Another deep, dense, brooding Calvert bottling. This wine never really show it's true predigre on release but it's already looking pretty good. Like many great wines of the world as the minutes, hours, days, years tick on by the wine evolves, shape-shifts and continues to amaze. Whilst not having the immediate appeal the Cornish Point always seems to have...if you're in this for the long haul it's often a case of the Tortoise and the Hare.
Drink from 2020 to 2030

Many California Pinot drinkers wouldn't bat an eye to spend $50 on a high quality Sonoma or Santa Rita Pinot Noir. Burgundy drinkers are just barely getting started at this price point, yet Felton Road is making absolutely world class wines and it feels like NO ONE IS NOTICING! Blind there would be no doubt to the trained aficionado that this is the fanciest Pinot. It's easy to recognize the world class wine making behind this special bottle. Powerful mineral complexity plays off a deep dark cherry and subtle savory quality. Incredibly pure and sound with a seamless structure that indicates years of further development ahead.

Very elegant with intense and pretty floral aromatics. Violets, along with cola, black cherries, along with wild berries and delicate spices. A wine that is never overwhelming, with a soft palate and incredibly velvety tannins. Excellent indeed
