Dark, brooding cinnamon and fleshy black plum provide an exciting, complex counterpoint to the rakish earthiness and exotic Asian spice going on in this full-bodied, explosively compelling wine, its minerality lingering. It's young and still tightly coiled, with lingering minerality; let it open to enjoy now, but it would show best after some time, so cellar through 2024. VIRGINIE BOONE

The Golden Mean is made exclusively from Pommard and Swan clones. Medium to deep ruby-purple, the 2014 Pinot Noir Golden Mean has a lovely floral nose of violets and roses over a core of red cherries and pomegranate with hints of cinnamon stick and toast. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with perfumed red berry flavors with a solid frame of chewy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing on a spicy note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A blend that's made from a mix of Pommard and Swan, the 2014 Pinot Noir Golden Mean is another sensational 2014. Incredibly perfumed, with raspberry, violets, peach and floral notes, this beauty is elegant, seamless and pure on the palate, with the good acidity, and a seamlessness that's hard to believe. It picks up more spice and forest floor notes with time in the glass, has a big core of sweet fruit, and impeccable overall balance. It’s great today, but will easily continue drinking nicely through 2026.

Wayfarer's 2014 Pinot Noir Golden Mean is dark, powerful and inviting. Dark red cherry, plum, menthol, new leather and spice meld together in a supple, open-knit Pinot appears to be built for drinking over the next handful of years. At times, the 2014 feels a bit forced, especially when the alcohol peeks through the fruit. Still, this site is so special that there is more than enough pedigree to compensate for the occasional imperfection. -- Antonio Galloni
