91 points "The impressive, dark plum/purple-colored 2004 Pinot Noir Evelyn possesses a deep, layered mouthfeel as well as a soft, attractive, velvety-textured, opulent personality. Sweet cherry and strawberry jam notes intermixed with forest floor, herbs, and spicy oak emerge from this complex, already delicious effort. It should drink well for 7-8 years. " Best 2006-2014

97 points "Stunning. Just magnificent. This is from Tantara’s little Bien Nacido block. It achieves wonderfully ripe fruit flavors with clean, balancing tannins and acids to produce the utmost California cool-climate Pinot Noir. Cherries, raspberries, cola, rich new oak and Asian spice flavors all flood the palate, wrapped into a dramatic silky, velvety texture. This is great Pinot Noir. "
