Press Reviews:

`It has an attractive tertiary/woodland-scented bouquet with dried rose petal notes coming through, much less fruit driven than many other 2012 Pinot Noirs. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. It is quite sappy in style with crisp black fruit rather than red, leading to a focused, slightly austere, tobacco-tinged and saline finish.` Neal Martin, March 2015, 89 ponits, Drink. 2016 - 2024

`Aromas of walnuts, berries and spices with hints of orange peel. Full-bodied with a soft texture and chewy tannins. A juicy delicious wine already.` 94 points, James Suckling

`Limpid ruby-red. Expansive aromas of ripe red berries, cherry and succulent herbs, with mineral and spice flourishes adding lift. Offers bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors, a touch allspice and a floral nuance that builds with aeration. Shows gentle tannic grip on a very long, spicy finish that leaves a sweet candied lavender note behind. Drink 2020-2026` 91pts, Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2019
