92 points "This is full of forest floor, stem, mushroom and light cherry fruit paired with faint baking spice. It’s a lovely, fresh and complex nose. In the mouth this has a lovely richness, feeling absolutely round and almost lush on the palate. The flavors of fresh berry fruit and wonderful and paired with great inner mouth perfumes of mushroom, beetroot, sage, and cherry candy. There is a really nice structural tension in the mouth as well, to the point that you don’t even notice the acidity or the tannins until you look for them. There’s a black cherry medicinal tone on the backend, and the succulent tannins add a hint of refreshing astringency and some stemmy tones that lead to a long, layered, fruit driven and spice toned finish. Wonderful pinot, richly flavored with a lovely texture." Best 2010-2013
