They're always good and always different. Same fruit but very individual winemaking characters. This is clearly made in a Burgundian style with the suggestion of some whole-bunch giving the wine a sappy complexity - an acquired taste which I have acquired. Delicate floral wine with appealing purity and length. A real charmer with interesting bottle development.

Knockout nose combines raspberry smoke spices and loamy soil tones. Fat sweet sexy and rich but with ripe harmonious acidity giving shape to the red berry and underbrush flavors. Velvety in the middle and nicely sappy on the long sweet finish which features thoroughly ripe smooth tannins. A liquid confection.

The 2009 Calvert Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Noir comes from 11 year old vines on schist. It displays a deep ruby-purple color and meaty/gamey aromas over a core of black cherry and black raspberry plus hints of some tar anise and menthol. Full bodied and concentrated in the mouth it has chewy tannins medium-high acid and a long savory finish. Drink it now through 2015+.
