96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2019 Pinot Noir Radian is stunning. Dark and explosive in the glass, the 2019 possesses tremendous depth from start to finish. Blue fruit, lavender, spice and menthol build in a Pinot of remarkable gravitas and personality. I suppose it is hardly a surprise, but The Hilt's Radian Pinot is the perfect embodiment of what this site has to offer, namely power, volume and an intensely dark fruit profile. Superb. Drink: 2024-2034. (Oct 2021)"
96 points James Suckling: "This is very distinctive, with sliced oranges and spices, turning to forest-floor fruit and mushrooms. Some rose hips, rose stems and hibiscus, too. Medium to full body. Candied oranges and sweet berries. Flavorful finish with blue fruit. Drink or hold. (4/7/22)"
