91 points International Wine Report: "[$35 list] The Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County is always a superb value, and is no exception on 2018. This serves up bright aromatics of red berries, currant, blood orange and dried spice combined with classic earthy, cola, and floral scents. It's a text book old-world style Pinot that has plenty of character. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. Drink: 2020-2027. (Jun 2020)"

Producer notes: "Strawberries and blackberries aromas slowly rise out of the glass. Over time, more of the anise and clove will mix with these other aromas. Currently, the wine is young with mouth filling intensity and suppleness. Complexity will increase as the wine ages, but this wine should stay 'fresh' for 6 or 7 years. Like all Au Bon Climat wines, this is a food wine. In its youth, match this wine with lamb or dried meats. After a few years, as the flavors coalesce, it will pair better with salmon or mild red sauce with pasta. Alcohol 13.5%."
