Tasted alongside the Old Weka Pass Road there was a clear family resemblance with both wines expressing similar tautness, purity and minerality but this more expensive label shows significantly greater concentration and structure. Supremely powerful Pinot Noir but the power is delivered with great finesses. Clearly built for the long haul, I would feel a sense of loss if I opened a bottle before 2019 and expect it to continue to give pleasure for more than a decade after that.
Firm but generous, this offers juicy acidity that leads the way for some intense wild raspberry, cherry and blackberry flavors, revealing anise, dried lavender, clove, toast and wilted rose petal notes in the background. The tannins add an appealing mark of firmness on the long finish. Drink now through 2030. (MW)
Medium to deep ruby colored, the 2011 Bell Hill Pinot Noir offers a black fruit nose with notes of black cherries, mulberries and blackberries plus nuances of cloves, cinnamon and anise. Medium bodied, the palate is densely packed with black berry and baking spice flavors and highly structured with a refreshing acid backbone and firm, grainy tannins, finishing long with a pleasant herbal lift.

Bright red. Complex, Burgundian aromas of raspberry, smoked meat, earth and spices. Densely packed, rich and vibrant, with pungent smoky minerality energizing the sappy strawberry and spice flavors. Captivating limestone-driven pinot, finishing with superb breadth and length, classic dryness and dusty but ripe tannins. (ST)
