($79) Bright, deep medium red. Aromas of dark raspberry, smoke, earth and flinty minerality showed more pinot lift and perfume with aeration. Then silky, suave and dry on the palate, with superb depth to its youthful, fleshy raspberry fruit. Finishes very long and subtle, with impressively suave tannins. This initially showed less energy than my Block 3 bottle but gained in lift with 24 hours in the recorked bottle and became less earth-bound. These two wines, from Felton Road's estate Elms vineyard in Bannockburn, are consistently among New Zealand's most exciting pinots. (Wilson Daniels Ltd., St. Helena CA)
