94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Aurora Point is gorgeous. Creamy, ample and wonderfully open-knit, the 2018 is super-expressive. Dried pear, sage, mint, anise and wild flowers all meld together in a beautifully textured Sauvignon Blanc. Lees stirring brings out striking layers of nuance and dimension. Drink: 2021-2028. (Jan 2021)"

91 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "[$50 list] The 2018 Pinot Noir Land’s Edge Vineyards was aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, 31% new. Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, it bursts from the glass with bold expressions of black cherries, mulberries and wild blueberries plus suggestions of tobacco leaf, fragrant earth and lilacs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with freshly crushed red and blue fruits, supported by grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note. 2,328 cases were made. Drink: 2021-2027. (Jan 2021)"

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "White grapefruit, acacia flowers, pine, and salted citrus notes all emerge from the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Aurora Point Vineyard. A beautifully balanced, elegant Sauvignon Blanc with bright acidity, plenty of fruit, and a dry finish, it's going to keep for at least 4-5 years, and I suspect even longer. Drink: 2020-2026. (5/21/20)"

Producer notes: "[$50 list] The Aurora Point Sauvignon Blanc is transporting with its laser like focus and exquisite fruit, representing the capability of high elevation Sauvignon Blanc. The 2018 Aurora Point is a perfume of apricot and grapefruit. A brilliant clean mouthfeel combines with savory acidity and is joined by flavors of green apple, lemongrass and white peach."
