Felton Road Pinot Noir Block 5 2011
Subtle aromas of exotic spices, dark roses, violets and dried red fruits. The palate is instantly about texture, richness, copious fine dark tannin and hints of spice; but fruit takes a distant back seat somewhere way down in the darkness. In a few years the treasure chest will no doubt open, but right now it is all intrigue. Polished and seamless with the usual luxuriant Block 5 finish.Winemaker notes.
Open Monday-Friday 2pm-5pm or by appointment
External Reviews for Felton Road Pinot Noir Block 5
Dried flowers and dark fruits. Strawberry. Beet root. Fine tannins. Bright tension. Drink or hold. James Suckling.
Dark red. Musky aromas of raspberry mocha and earth; very ripe in a Burgundy way. Plush broad and sweet showing a touch of youthful reduction to its generous raspberry and red cherry flavors. Finishes very long and scented with a fine dusting of tannins and subtle soil tones. A beauty. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
