A very floral, perfumed, classic Pinot Noir nose: fruit, violets, spice and bramble, with nothing in excess. Creamy and weighty across the mid-palate, very flowing, almost juicy sweetness with just enough dusty tannins kicking in to complement a dark finish with hints of espresso and chocolate. Complete, complex and close to the ultimate expression for a Felton Road Pinot Noir.
"Good deep red. Lovely high-pitched aromas and flavors of raspberry, orange peel, spices and flowers. At once sweet and penetrating, with bright acidity framing the wine's ripe flavors and giving it terrific Chambolle-like precision. Finishes with enticing floral and spicy perfume. Remarkably good for a basic pinot release.

"Juicy and concentrated, with fine balance to wild raspberry, blueberry and pervasive wet stone character. Sandalwood and subtle spice highlight the mineral nuances on the finish. Opens up nicely with air. Drink now through 2012. 8,000 cases made."
"The ensuing 2007 Pinot Noir has a very elegant, understated nose that takes time to peek its head over the horizon. At first, simple strawberry and dark cherry fruit but there is a subtle touch of undergrowth and charcoal. Good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant, very harmonious with prudent, well integrated oak. Silky smooth and very pure on the finish, this is another classy Felton Road to cherish.
