93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Production has more than doubled for this amphora-fermented cuvée. Lovely scents and flavors of plum and blueberry fruit are dappled with cinnamon and cocoa highlights, adding a dusty quality to the palate impression. The tannins are strong, ripe and slightly chewy, with further notes of coffee grounds rolling across the finish. (Mar 2022)"
93 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Pinot Noir VGR has a medium ruby-purple color and powerful aromas of cranberries, blueberries and tangerine with accents of woodsmoke, tea leaves and dark spices. The medium-bodied palate is pure and defined with bright berries and citrus wrapped in a silky frame, and it finishes with fresh lift and pretty perfume. Drink: 2022-2032. (Dec 2021)"
93 points James Suckling: "A juicy red with aromas of plums and strawberries with some flowers. Full to medium body with medium, round tannins and a juicy finish. Orange-peel undertones at the end. Amphora. Drink or hold. (8/9/22)"
