92 points "Color: dark; Nose: discreet; Aromas: red berry, black berry; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: pleasant; Dark and brooding with a bit more jammy fruit than most DG PN's, but with enough texture and body that showed with air and time. Plum and cherries, some menthol and leather. Pleasant." Best 2016-

93 points "Good full red. Brooding aromas of raspberry and menthol are joined by a floral element as the wine opens in the glass. Silky, classically dry and savory, with a light touch and an impression of almost salty minerality. More red and less black in fruit character than the Green Valley examples. Really dusts the palate on the long aftertaste. This opened beautifully with air, but I'd still wait at least a year or two to pull the cork..." Best 2014-2016

94 points "Somewhere between the acidity and dryness, this Pinot has a terrifically interesting core. It's a subtle wine, now suggesting cherry fruit, now retreating in favor of earthier mushrooms, minerals and pine needles, framed in firm tannins. Strikes out new territory for cool-climate Pinot Noir, less ripe, lower in alcohol and more exciting."
