92 points "92-points: Bright violet. Highly aromatic bouquet of black raspberry, dried rose, Asian spices and white pepper. Deeply pitched dark berry flavors gain vivacity with aeration, picking up notes of cinnamon and rose pastille. Finishes with excellent clarity and nervy, spicy persistence. Lots going on already but this showy wine is also balanced to age. This wine was made by Steve Ryan, formerly of Martinelli Vineyards in Sonoma and now at Mendocino Farms. " Best 2013-2015

91 points "91 – Points: The 2008 Pinot Noir Cote Est displays an aromatic array of pain grille, mineral, Asian spices, and black cherry. This is followed by a sweetly-fruited wine with good density, some structure, and incipient complexity. Give it 2-3 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2012 to 2020." Best 2012-2020
