94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard comes from a great site on the eastern end of the Sta. Rita Hills and was completely destemmed. Black raspberries, smoked earth, graphite, and ample minerality give way to a fresh, focused, nicely concentrated Sta. Rita Hills effort that has good acidity, and spice, pepper, mineral, fresh and focused, with plenty of focus and cut. It too has a decade of longevity. Drink: 2018-2028. (2/14/19)"

93 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "[$60 list] Vivid ruby-red. An expansive exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark berries potpourri smoky minerals and Moroccan and Asian spices. Sappy and focused on the palate offering juicy blackberry and cherry liqueur five-spice powder and cola flavors and a hint of candied rose. Fleshy and energetic in style showing youthfully chewy texture strong closing thrust and slow-mounting tannins on the clinging finish. Drink: 2022-2028. (Oct 2018)"

93 points PinotFile: "14.2% alc., pH 3.52, TA 0.59, screw cap. 100% de-stemmed. Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, 35% new. Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Intriguing aromas of dark berry mash, oak spice and rose petal. Sleek and sexy in the mouth in a mid weight plus style with waves of purple and blackberry fruits underlain with vibrant acidity. The whole package is harmonious with an uplifting finish. (11/18/18)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "This offers laserlike focus to the concentrated red currant, cherry and plum flavors that offer plenty of minerality. Dark chocolate notes emerge on the spicy and creamy finish. Drink now through 2022. 751 cases made. (10/31/18)"

91 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: "Medium-light to medium ruby; attractive, forward, fragrant, red currant, and dark cherry fruit aroma with hints of forest floor and baking spices; medium body; rich, earthy, dark cherry and red berry fruit flavors with good acid balance, and a velvety mouthfeel; medium tannin; lingering aftertaste. Deserves several more years of bottle aging. 14.2% alcohol; 754 cases; to be released April 2019. (Oct 2018)"
