94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Mulled cherries, wild strawberries, iodine, sappy herbs, and a touch of forest floor all emerge from the 2018 Pinot Noir Sierra Mar Vineyard. Nicely balanced, it has a wonderful texture and sweet tannins, and is just a classy, complex Pinot Noir. Coming from a mix of clones (943, Calera, Pisoni, and Swan) and brought up in 61% new French oak, drink it over the coming 8-10 years. Drink: 2020-2030. (5/21/20)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "Powerfully structured, minerally and slate-driven, with hints of black pepper to the dark currant, raspberry and black olive flavors. Tarry nuances and dark chocolate notes emerge on the broad, enveloping finish. Drink now through 2025. 683 cases made. (7/31/20)"

Producer notes: "A perfumed nose of dark berry and spice leads into dark fruit, herbs, and sandalwood on the palate in this dense expression of Pinot Noir. Notes of oregano and thyme mingle with a trace of coriander over dense blackberry and black cherry and extend through a finish full of fruit and textured by black tea and spice. 683 cases produced."
