The 2020 Calvert Pinot Noir is sumptuously red fruited, with cherry, strawberry, raspberry/rhubarb, pink peppercorns and star anise. There's even fennel seeds. In the mouth, the wine plays along so nicely and cooperatively. It is an elegant, supple wine in a wonderful place right now. If you are playing along at home, this is now entering a sublime drinking window. 14% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2020 Pinot Noir Calvert may initially seem smooth and refined, but there's no escaping its sense of power; it packs a punch with its concentrated core and structured tannic frame. While you'll find cherry-like fruit and a floral lift, there's a distinctly savory edge to this vintage, which displays Worcestershire sauce, spice and fruitcake alongside herbal notes. It achieves a wonderful balance between the core of ripe fruit and the powerful structure. A Calvert has the brawn to age and will benefit from more time in bottle. Rebecca Gibb, Vinous
