96 points James Suckling: "Plump, ripe dark fruit and berries, baking spice and dried herbs on the nose. Full-bodied with fine, structured tannins. Blackberries and black licorice wash over the palate with earth and savory herbs. Well-crafted acidity keeps the intensity steady through the long, warming finish. Best after 2024. (12/5/21)"
95 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2019 Pinot Noir UV Vineyard is incredibly delicate and refined. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sage, dried rose petals and blood orange infuse the UV with notable brightness and energy to match its soft curves. In the glass, the UV is nuanced and so full of complexity. The 2019 UV Pinot is one of the most elegant Pinots I have tasted from Mark Aubert. I would cellar the 2019 for a few years as it has just been bottled. Drink: 2023-2034. (Jan 2021)"
93 points Wine Spectator: "This crunchy red delivers flavors of dried raspberry and dark currant, with juicy acidity. Ends with toasty richness on the broad and well-spiced finish, with notes of tarragon. Drink now through 2025. 1,155 cases made. (9/30/21)"
Producer notes: "The 2019 UV Pinot Noir offers a detailed bouquet of warm blackberries, strawberry powder, and kirsch with wafts of orange tea and savory nuances. The wine moves across the palate with authority and ease, framed by notes pomegranate reduction and clay soils. Ripe, velvety tannins integrate seamlessly with a concentrated core of exquisite red fruit, leading to a long and succulent finish. Suggested drinking window is 2021 through 2034."
