2014 Pinot Noir Calvert

The wine leads with the characteristic Calvert restrained nose that is pure and tight. The palate is similarly focussed with great detail and a tight core of vivid red fruits. It delivers a sort of essence of pinosity that leaves no doubt about the wine?s origin. There is a crunch to the texture of the wine as the structure lifts its head, but the tannins are never harsh, simply stating that they are there for the long haul. The wine finishes with the accuracy and finesse that is becoming the hallmark of Calvert.

Wine Spectator Insider, MaryAnn Worobiec, June 2016

Plush and elegant, offering wild strawberry and raspberry flavours with plenty of precision to the white pepper and fresh earth notes. Fresh and vibrant, showing intensity on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 94 Points

Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, December 2015

Pale ruby-purple coloured, the 2014 Pinot Noir Calvert has pronounced, youthful aromas of Bing cherries, black raspberries and mulberries with hints of earth, menthol and sage. Medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and lively on the palate, it offers layers of bramble berry and earthy flavours, finishing with good length and chewy texture. 91 Points
