94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Brought up mostly in French oak, with a small amount in concrete, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has that classic Sonoma Coast pretty red fruit-driven style as well as subtle white flower, spice, and even a kiss of minerality. It's beautifully balanced and medium-bodied, with an elegant, ethereal style that still has solid structure. It will drink well for a decade. Drink: 2020-2030. (5/21/20)"

93 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "[$115 list] Coming about 30% to 40% from Gap's Crown this vintage, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has very pretty, sweet berry fruits—strawberries, raspberries, rhubarb—with accents of tea leaves, dried flowers and fragrant earth. The medium-bodied palate has a great dichotomy of classic Pinot Noir fruit and amaro-like bitterness, juicy, soft and sexy with a long, spicy finish. Lovely! Drink: 2020-2026. (Jul 2020)"

92 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: "Medium-light to medium ruby color; attractive, deep, rich, ripe, earthy, cherry, raspberry, and blackberry fruit aroma with spicy notes and hints of forest floor and black tea; medium-full body; deep, nicely balanced, red and dark fruit flavors with spicy notes, bright acidity, a rich mouthfeel, and some complexity on the finish; medium to medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Impressive to taste now, though deserving several more years of bottle aging. 14.4% alcohol; released Spring 2020. (Aug 2020)"
