93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of fresh red cherries and some rose-like florals, in an upbeat, fruit-driven style. A very concentrated and ripe array of brambly raspberries and red cherries with smooth tannins, delivering a web of fresh-fruit flavor. Succulent and spicy, oak-tinged finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap. (10/16/19)"

92.5 points CellarTracker.com community score.

92 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Normally a bit darker in fruit tone than the blended bottling, the 2018 Cornish Point Pinot Noir features black cherries and a hint of licorice, plus some vaguely floral notions. It's medium to full-bodied, with supple tannins and just a bit of chocolate on the finish, reflecting the warmth of the vintage. Drink: 2020-2027. (Feb 2020)"

Producer notes: "Lifted aromas of violet and rose integrate seamlessly with black cherry and complexing earthen and dried herb notes. The classic Cornish Point expansiveness and deep fruit provides a solid core through the mid-palate. Restraint and transparency with the winemaking allows the site to clearly express its unique personality from this distinctive lakeside site. Velvet like tannins coat the mouth for a rich and thoroughly engaging finish."
