2019 WINE SPECTATOR TOP 100: #46

"This displays an impressive presence, smooth and succulent, with vibrant cherry, raspberry and apricot notes and touches of white pepper, anise seed and toasted cumin. The texture is smooth, with firm tannins that add an appealing traction on the finish. Drink now through 2033. 4,500 cases made, 3,500 cases imported. -MW" (WS)

"The 2018 Pinot Noir offers a solid bouquet of sweet red fruits, spice, and underbrush to go with a soft, forward, balanced, and enjoyable style on the palate. It's well made, has no hard edges, and delivers a good, clean finish." (JD)

"While this organically farmed Pinot isn't as fruit forward as previous vintages, it makes up for it with an abundance of fresh herbs: thyme, rosemary and fennel seeds, with some leafy secondary characters and red-berry fruit in the mix too. Mouthwatering acidity and crunchy fruit are balanced by sandy tannins. Drink this light-bodied bottle a little chilled, with a summer meal seasoned with the same freshly plucked herbs as the nose suggests. Christina Pickard" (WE)
