94 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "Made in slightly higher amounts than many of the producer's other estate wines, this is an outstanding value for the quality,—a wildly delicious expression of the grape, region and vintage that is in cohesive harmony. Savory, rocky and textured, it blends 30% of its grapes from neighboring Hellenthal Vineyard, the combination exploding in red tangy fruit. Alcohol 12.9%. (Dec 2020)"

92 points Wine Spectator: "Offers mouthfilling acidity, with cedar-infused flavors of raspberry ganache and cherry tart, featuring licorice and floral accents. Forest floor notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,376 cases made. (10/15/20)"

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the Pinot Noirs and the largest production cuvée (it's also the only 2018 presented), the 2018 Pinot Noir Bohan Dillon comes 70% from the Hirsch Vineyard and 30% from the Hellenthal Vineyard, aged 10 months in oak. This Côte de Nuits-like charmer has beautiful wild strawberry and mulberry fruits intermixed with plenty of spice as well as foresty, floral notes. Medium-bodied, elegant, and vibrant on the palate, with a terrific sense of tension, it's mid-weight yet still intense. This beautiful wine will evolve for over a decade. It's a smoking value. Drink: 2020-2031. (7/29/20)"

92 points James Suckling: "A delicious, fruity pinot with a generous amount of ripe-strawberry character and round tannins, yet there’s tension and focus to the wine. Full-bodied, layered and lively with integrated tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold. (9/1/20)"
