($60) Bright medium red. Precise aromas of raspberry and minerals call to mind a wine from the southern Cote de Nuits. Urgent, sharply delineated yet utterly silky flavors of sweet berries and minerals saturate the palate. This wonderfully rich and substantial but classically dry wine offers an uncanny sappy quality and positively vibrates in the mouth. Finishes with broad, suave tannins and outstanding persistence.

The beguiling 2007 Block 5 Pinot Noir has a lovely nose with Felton's trademark purity and finesse: succinct redcurrant, raspberry and wild strawberry aromas swelling in the glass with a slight clayey earthy undertow. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very approachable with superb balance. It may lack the weight and ambition of the 2006, but it compensates with femininity and refinement.

Streamlined and tight, with very good focus to black cherry, raspberry, red plum and toasty cedar flavors. Gains weight with air, showing intense minerality, fragrant spice and lean, coiled tannins that define the finish. Best from 2010 through 2013. 800 cases made

Forward floral perfume nose. On palate, kind of a bit plain, needs ageing.
