Violets and exotic spices combine on the nose with dark fruits of black cherry and plum. The rush of the palate is breathtaking: the fruit, a rack of spices, a hint of oak, mocha chocolate and the sheer textural opulence all fight for your instant attention. The riot continues into the finish, but ends clean with chocolate tannin and a cleansing minerality. A commanding wine.
"More perfumed and floral than the other 2010 Pinot Noirs from Felton Road, the Cornish Point is a pretty, slightly delicate wine that nevertheless doesn’t lack for intensity. It’s medium in weight, with creamy tannins that finish like silk."
"This starts off simple and juicy, focused on blueberry flavors and a rasp of fruit skin spice. As it evolves in the glass, the scent opens to flowers and the fruit becomes more complex. Give this six months in bottle then serve with Cantonese roast duck."
