FELTON ROAD Pinot Noir Block 5 2016

93 Points

Earthy and floral, the 2016 Block 5 Pinot Noir smells like dusty rose petals sprinkled over a bed of plummy fruit. Cola notes add a savory character on the palate, which is medium to full-bodied but supple and elegant. The finish firms up a bit, so try to keep your hands off it for the next couple of years and then drink it over the next decade.
