96 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyards takes time to open, metamorphosing from iron and woodsmoke to raspberries, dried flowers, dark spices and aniseed. The medium-bodied palate is silky and seamlessly fresh, loaded with perfectly ripe, earth-laced fruits whose flavors linger for a very long time in the mouth. This has the fruit intensity and structure to age very well in bottle. Drink: 2021-2035. (Jun 2021)"

95 points James Suckling: "Blueberry and spice with lightly toasted notes and some nuts. Full, yet very tight, with refined tannins and polish. Linear and long. Intense and vivid. A beauty. This needs time to open. Try after 2022. (1/14/22)"

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2019 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyards reveals a medium ruby, semi-opaque hue to go with stunning notes of ripe black cherries, black tea, spice, and a distinct, racy, reductive, mineral nuance that builds with time in the glass. Beautifully textured, nicely structured, and balanced, it's going to cruise for 5-7 years, if not over a decade, in cold cellars. Drink: 2021-2030. (7/22/21)"

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$70 list] Savory forest-floor tones contrast well against crisp, focused flavors of blood orange, pomegranate and cherry. With length and breadth, it is structured yet expansive, with and immensely delicious palate. Alcohol 14.2%. (Sep 2021)"

93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$70 list] The 2019 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyards is a gorgeous introduction to these wines. Aromatic, nuanced and wonderfully expressive, the 2019 hits all the right notes. Sweet rose petal, dried herbs, red cherry, pomegranate and cedar are some of the many notes that open in the glass. All the elements are so nicely balanced. Drink: 2024-2034. (Jan 2021)"

92 points Wine Spectator: "Well-knit, with fresh spiciness to raspberry and cherry tart flavors that are flanked by hot stone accents. Finishes with slate notes and plenty of creaminess. Drink now through 2025. (8/31/21)"
