93Wine Spectator

Dynamic yet elegant and sleek, with refined cherry, dusky spice and crushed stone accents that take on richness and structure toward medium-grained tannins.

93James Suckling

A soft yet fresh pinot that has ripe-strawberry aromas and flavors with medium body and a juicy finish. Yummy, round and delicious.

92The Wine Advocate

...aromas of crushed cherries and blood orange with accents of forest floor and exotic spices. The medium-bodied palate is silky with uplifted, floral-laced fruits and a long, vivacious finish.

91Vinous / IWC

Smoke-accented cherry and black raspberry scents... Pliant and expansive on the palate, offering gently sweet, spice-laced red fruit and cola flavors and a touch of cured meat. Finishes on a gently tannic note, with persistent cherry and floral qualities and a hint of botanical herbs.
