From a biodynamically farmed vineyard leased from Felton Road. Fragrant with red fruits, flowers, and mushrooms. Riich and vivid flavors of red fruits and fresh herbs. Impressive energy and depth in the finish. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Enclosed in Stelvin screwcap.

"Good medium-deep red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, smoke, spices and loamy soil tones. Fat, sweet, sexy and rich, but with ripe, harmonious acidity giving shape to the red berry and underbrush flavors. Velvety in the middle and nicely sappy on the long, sweet finish, which features thoroughly ripe, smooth tannins. A liquid confection." 92/100 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"The 2009 Calvert Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Noir comes from 11 year old vines on schist. It displays a deep ruby-purple color and meaty/gamey aromas over a core of black cherry and black raspberry plus hints of some tar, anise and menthol. Full bodied and concentrated in the mouth, it has chewy tannins, medium-high acid and a long savory finish. Drink it now through 2015+." 91/100 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
