94 points "94 POINTS - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE ONLINE There are myriad fruity Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs – boasting cherries, berries, and all other sorts of red/black fruits – yet there are fewer Pinots from the region that also have intriguing herbal, spice, earth and other savory notes. There is a pleasantly haunting potpourri aroma to this wine – lavender, rose petals and allspice – and these notes carry through to the palate, adding great interest to the vivid wild-berry flavors. This wine is flat-out delicious, its palate weight and supple tannins making for pure, hedonistic enjoyment, with a succulent acid close. – Linda Murphy, January 29, 2013"

92 points "Very Highly Recommended - Medium-light ruby color, attractive, complex, black cherry and red berry fruit aroma with hints of dried herbs, cinnamon, sandalwood, and vanilla; medium to medium-full body; elegant, herbal, cherry and red berry fruit flavors with good depth and balance and a silky mouthfeel; medium-to-medium full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Developed with airing in the glass, and while very appealing to taste now, the wine deserves several more years of bottle aging. – Volume 39, February 2013"
