Bob Campbell - MW Bob Campbell, October 2010
Very attractive Pinot Noir with bright flavours that include red cherry floral spice and thyme. Supple attractive Pinot Noir - beautifully weighted elegant yet not short of power.

Matured for 11 months in French oak 20% new the 2009 Pinot Noir provides a medium ruby-purple color and intense aromas of black cherry and black raspberry with some floral/wilted roses and lavender nuances plus whiffs of forest floor and black truffles. There's stunning purity and nervy intensity on the palate with a high level of racy acidity cutting through the rich medium to full bodied fruit and textured by a medium to firm level of finely grained tannins. The finish is long. Approachable as it may be give this wine another year in bottle and enjoy it 2012 to 2016+.

This is a fairly big, muscular Pinot Noir, with beefy black-cherry fruit and oaky overtones of brown sugar. Give it a year or more to smooth out, because the long, intense finish filled with berry fruit shows tremendous promise. Drink 2013–2020.

Steve Green hired Jane Docherty, former assistant winemaker at Felton Road, to make the Carrick wines at his vineyard in Bannockburn. She allows a spontaneous fermentation in her pinot noirs, elevating the schisty tannic spice of this 2009 to line up with the bright red fruit and rose scents. It’s brisk, firm and refreshing, a pinot noir to serve with braised wild duck.
