92 Points, Wine Review Online. “I appreciate this wine for its artful blend of my favorite Pinot characteristics — vibrant cherry fruit, dusty dry earth minerality, mild fall spice and a citric quality to the finish that refreshes the palate while lingering pleasantly. Another fine example of what’s turning out to be a spectacular vintage for Pinot Noir in California.” —Rich Cook, December 22, 2015
91 Points, Wine Enthusiast. “The winery’s larger production offering, this is made from a handful of vineyards, including many used in vineyard-designates. Blending prowess shows in this wine that explodes in plum and clove. Tight, bright acid buoys flavors of strawberry, cranberry and orange, with a twisted funk of earth on the finish.” —Virginie Boone, May 2016
From the Winery: "This wine has gentle earth notes along with an undertone of sour Montmorency cherries baked in a cardamom and sage pie crust. This vintage shows firm acidity, soft tannin and a floral perfumed note that finishes with the wine. This wine will pair wonderfully with food. Dark turkey meat or roast winter squash come to mind".
