94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "[$50 list] A classic Sonoma Coast release, the 2016 Pinot Noir Land's Edge Vineyards offers perfumed notes of candied cherries, orange rind, rose petals, and sandalwood. I always find the true Sonoma Coast releases to have a rounded, supple texture and that’s certainly the case here. This medium-bodied wine has a silky texture, ripe yet polished tannins, and a great finish. Drink it over the coming decade. This cuvée comes from two Sonoma Coast sites located 4 miles off the coast and spent 31% new French oak. Drink: 2019-2029. (6/14/19)"

93 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "[$50 list] Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Land’s Edge Vineyards reveals a wonderfully expressive nose of pomegranate, red and black cherries and mulberries with touches of rhubarb, forest floor and yeast extract. Medium-bodied, the soft, silken palate has bags of elegance and restraint with red and black fruit layers and earthy accents, finishing with great length. 1,605 cases produced. Drink: 2018-2025. (Oct 2018)"

91 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: "Medium ruby color; attractive, deep, intense, raspberry and black cherry fruit aroma with hints of forest floor, clove, and vanilla; medium to medium-full body; rich, ripe, textured, red fruit flavors with good depth and acid balance, a hint of Asian spices, and a crisp finish; medium to medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Enjoyable to taste now, though will benefit from a few more years of bottle aging. 14.5% alcohol; 1,600 cases; released November 2018. (Oct 2018)"

Producer notes: "The nose leads with aromas of red and black cherry, pomegranate and dried rose petal. The layered flavors of dark berries, plum and licorice lead to a mid-palate with elegant and polished texture. The wine ends with a lingering mocha and mineral finish."
