94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Powerful aromas of black cherry, tobacco, clove, chocolate and oak are heavy but pleasing on this bold style of Pinot Noir. The lush, delicious and potent palate delivers more of the same, with black-cherry and tobacco flavors sprinkled with crushed nutmeg and vanilla. Matt Kettmann" - (10/1/2019)

98 Points - James Suckling:
"Such attractive, fresh, floral aromas here with fine bread, hints of white almonds and a lemon edge. White cherries and strong, chalky minerals, too. The palate has a very composed feel. Seamless and quite silky texture with effortless length and flow. Very fluid and composed. Very late, warming almond flavors. This is very long and smooth with a velvety finish. Super long pinot weight. Resolved and drinkable, but will age so well." - (12 Jul, 2019)

92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Bright pink. A pungent, complex bouquet displays scents of cherry, rhubarb and blood orange, along with suave floral and spice nuances. Bright and nervy in the mouth, with very good clarity and depth to its tangy red fruit flavors. A late jolt of chalky minerals adds definition and cut to the long, spice-accented finish." - Josh Raynolds (Dec '11)
