96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Belay is a real stunner. Explosive, beautifully perfumed and vivid, the 2017 has so much to offer. Sweet red cherry fruit, raspberry, blood orange, mint, spice and cedar all run through this sweeping, dramatic Pinot from Radio-Coteau. The 18% whole clusters add shades of nuance to a Pinot that is simply impeccable from start to finish. Drink: 2022-2032. (Apr 2020)"

Producer notes: "Our second Pinot Noir vintage from the Estate, the 2017 Belay boasts expressive fruit and a rich ruby core. Bright red fruits feature prominently on both the nose and palate, including pomegranate, raspberry compote, and dried cranberry. The restrained use of new French oak comes through with delicate notes of clove, vanilla, and pie crust, and a savory hint of herbes de Provence further complements the vibrant fruit. A touch of wet stone minerality commingles with refreshing acidity, harmonizing with polished tannins into a lengthy and layered finish."
