2013 Pinot Noir Calvert

2013 Pinot Noir Calvert

 

 Typical refined and deeply perfumed nose of dark fruits and enticing florals. These characters are echoed on the palate which is tightly bound with finely woven tannins. A juicy acidity and minerality provides the distinct brightness and penetrating focus of this great vineyard site. A wine of serious structure yet supremely balanced and elegant. 

eRobertParker.com, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 2014

Medium-deep ruby-purple in color, the 2013 Calvert Pinot Noir has a nose of dusty earth, warm red currants and cassis accented by pencil lead and hints of baking spices. Medium bodied and tightly-knit on the palate, it gives a great concentration of red and black fruit flavors, chewy tannins and earthy layers that emerge in the long finish. 91+ points.

Wine Spectator, MaryAnn Worobiec, Published 2015

Aromatic and very spicy, with clove, cinnamon and nutmeg details that lend plenty of intrigue to the core of fleshy plum and black-berry flavors.  Fresh and vibrant, but with some brooding earth and forest floor notes that gain momentum on the velvety finish.  Drink now through 2030. 94 Points.
