This Pinot Noir is made from fruit coming from the oldest vines, in an area they call 'F Block'. And we agree with that because this wine is absolutely Fantatsic!
Such concentration of flavours in that Pinot and so much complexity and finesse at the same time.
A fantastic drop!

Concentrated Pinot Noir, perhaps without quite the power and depth of its sister label (Outpost) but showing complexity and finesse. I noted dark cherry, violet, savoury/fresh herbs and spicy oak flavours. Sweet fruit are balanced by gently drying tannins. Bob Campbell, Rating 91
Good bright, deep red. Tart red berries, liquorice and sweet oak on the nose. Sweet and glyceral, with attractive redcurrant and cranberry fruit flavors along with an obvious oakiness. Very good material and breadth here, if not the last word in refinement. Finishes with dusty tannins and good length. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Rating 89
Winery Tasting Notes
Plum and cherry with signature cranberry and anise notes from this block.
Typical “F Block” mid palate sweetness forms a rich mouthfilling wine. Plum, tomato and allspice notes in a highly concentrated package.
