92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "[$42 list] The appellation release, the 2017 Pinot Noir Estate is all estate fruit that spent 15 months in 35% new French oak. Beautiful notes of red currants, raspberries, spring flowers, and ground herbs notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, fresh, racy effort that has bright acidity, fine tannins, and a great finish. This vibrant, age-worthy effort will keep for over a decade. Drink: 2019-2029. (10/31/19)"
91 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Pinot Noir Estate was made with 10% whole cluster and aged 14 months in 30% new French oak. Pale to medium ruby, it gives up bright scents of cranberry jelly, raspberry and strawberry jam, black tea leaves and blood orange with a lovely floral streak plus accents of rhubarb, cinnamon stick and dried leaves. Light to medium-bodied, it’s broody in the mouth with a soft frame and bright freshness, finishing long. Drink: 2020-2025. (Feb 2020)"
