Felton Road

Felton Road 'Calvert' Pinot Noir 2010
N: Dense red fruits, a broody edge, plenty of oak; Sweet violets and an under current schistous minerality. Obvious complexity somewhat hidden within the youth of the bouquet. That said it also reminds me of a Beaune 1er Cru - jeunesse, but with great potential.

P: As the nose suggests with vibrant and electric flavors, noble tannins add plenty of texture(s) and structure, medium++ acidity further enhances these attributes. Great balance, fruity and not too lush; a long finish and high complexity. Please wait 3-5 years before you really enjoy this wine.
96 Points
