93 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "[$42 list] Deep glistening ruby-red. Vibrant, sharply focused aromas of cherry, potpourri and Asian spices are lifted by a smoky mineral flourish. Broad and concentrated on the palate, offering raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that show impressive energy and focus. Rich yet lively in character, finishing with strong, spicy drive and fine-grained tannins that come in late. 26% new French oak. Drink: 2023-2029. (Apr 2020)"

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)"

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$42 list] Soft but dense aromas of pomegranate meet with thyme and tarragon on the pleasant nose of this appellation blend. Tart cranberry and sour plum greet an array of herbs on the palate. Alcohol 13.5%. (Jan 2020)"
