Antonio Galloni's Vinous, September 2016
Another compelling wine, the 2014 Pinot Noir Old Guard is weightless and gracious on the palate, with more aromatic lift and silkiness than the Vanguard. From a flavor perspective, the two wines aren't that different... Another compelling wine, the 2014 Pinot Noir Old Guard is weightless and gracious on the palate, with more aromatic lift and silkiness than the Vanguard. From a flavor perspective, the two wines aren't that different because Sanford & Benedict is at the heart of both. Instead, in 2014 the differences are mostly textural, with perhaps just a touch more finesse here. The 2014 is all Sanford & Benedict fruit, 82% Mt. Eden clone and 18% Gamay clone, done with 35% whole clusters and aged mostly in neutral oak.

Give bottles 2-3 years of cellaring and enjoy through 2025. - Jeb Dunnuck
