2019 Felton Road "Calvert Vineyard" Pinot Noir Central Otago

SKU #1508547 98 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Beguiling pinot noir with an intense and seductive aroma suggesting red rose, violet and ripe black cherry. Mixed spices are more evident on the palate, which reveals fine, silken tannins and a very lengthy finish. An utterly charming wine that is delicious now but may become even more interesting in time. Inner quote mark (2/2021)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very vibrant and ripe Calvert with attractively spicy oak integration, as well as abundant red and dark cherries. Super fragrant. The palate is so silky and plush, packed with concentrated, fresh red-cherry flavor. Blueberry finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark This is a pup of a Pinot Noir, full of youthful vigor. In addition to its floral and cherry-infused nose, there is a bouquet garni of woody herbs, which could be partly explained by a 25% whole bunch component, as well as in-bunch variation, which was a signature of this vintage at Felton Road, according to winemaker Blair Walter. While silken and satisfying, there is an innate energy and this youthful expression has a brace of gravelly tannins that build toward the end. The sinewy, fragrant and fresh finish provides line and length. Far too young to be approaching. Give it a minimum of 2 years to get into its groove. (RG) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dense, dark, brambly fruit flavors at the core expand to loam, white pepper, dried herb, tobacco and black tea notes and muscular tannins that firm up on the long finish, where all the elements find harmony. (MW, Web-2021) Inner quote mark
