Tasted alongside Felton's other pinot noir from a later vintage (2016) this was my favourite. I liked the structure and intensity, which suggested the wine will age very well indeed and I guess it has the provenance to support that conjecture. I got a strong violet and dark cherry character with coffee, Oriental spices and a suggestion of dark chocolate. Very impressive wine with a big future.
92+ Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Block 5 Pinot Noir is youthfully reticent, offering delicate earth and floral notes over a core of red berries and pomegranate, plus a waft of garrigue. Light to medium-bodied, it has a fine backbone of satiny textured tannins and just enough acid to carry the perfumed fruit to a good, long finish. Give it another couple of years in bottle to see it really strut its stuff.
