93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "[$50 list] The appellation 2019 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is also terrific and in the same league as the 2018. From a mix of the single vineyards, it’s medium-bodied and beautifully pure, with a pretty, balanced, textbook style as well as notes of framboise, cherries, iodine, spice, and black tea. Aged 16 months in 10% new French oak, there are 500+ cases made and it’s well worth seeking out. (8/26/21)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$50 list] The 2019 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is a very good wine for the year. Bright red berry fruit, flowers, spice are very nicely lifted. The 2019 offers lovely translucence if not quite the multi-dimensional personality. The 2019 is nervy, taut and full of character, in a style that offers a bit more freshness and cut than the deeper 2018. (Oct 2021)"

Producer notes: "[$50 list] The 2019 has begun drinking very well, right out of the gate, with super complex red and blue fruits, a touch of minerals, baking spices, fresh herbs and forest floor, along with great natural acidity. The wine is perhaps a bit more dense than the fresh, inviting 2018, but it is also layered and juicy with fantastic fruit that echoes on the long finish. Although young, the wine’s great freshness and lift provides delicious drinking already, with 8-10 years of aging potential as well. Only 550 cases of this wine were produced in 2019."
