2003 Felton Road Estate Block 3 Central Otago New Zealand Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., $50, screw cap. · Saucy cherries and baking spices on the nose. Perfectly composed vivid Pinot fruits with well integrated spices and herbs. An utter joy and privilege to drink and a benchmark for Middle Earth Pinot Noir. Oh, by the way, there is also a Block 5 bottling which some critics think is the best of all the Felton Road wines. It is no coincidence that Felton Road wines are imported by the same company, Wilson Daniels, that imports Domaine Romanee-Conti to the U.S.. Reviewed April 16, 2006
