Wine Spectator - February 2018 - 91pts "Starts slow but builds gracefully, accented by a mix of gravel, dark berry, lavender and anise notes. Drink now through 2026." -J.L.
PinotFile – November 12th, 2017 - 92pts "Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Seductive aromas of fresh cold berries, spice and turned earth. A mouthful of Pinot goodness in a mid weight plus style featuring an impressive expression of black cherry fruit underlain with notes of warm spices and tobacco. Easy to like now, with micro grain tannins, supportive acidity, and a flattering finish."
Winesofnote.com - November, 2017 - 91pts "The color is a bright, translucent ruby with a pale pink rim. The nose is not shy, it rises from the glass to greet you with cedar shavings, graphite, raspberry and hints of fresh baked bread. Very inviting. The flavors are bold yet ethereal. Rich fruit up front; blackberry, ripe cherry, tart cranberry that fades into an earthy layer with notes of leather and tobacco. Silky tannins. It has a long warming finish with a touch of oak... This wine is a great example of how good a Pinot Noir can be. As good as it is now, it’s youth is evident. A year or two in the cellar would do wonders."
Zinfandel Chronicles, November 2017 – 93pts "Light crimson in color. 14.2% ABV. Spellbinding nose of red fruits, forest floor and baking spices. Medium body with ample acidity. Restrained and earthy. Bing cherries, cranberries and earth on the palate. The finish is long and spicy. The wine picks up weight with time in the glass. Well made Pinot Noir. Drink over the next 4-6 years."
