Full-bodied, rich and quite spicy in the mouth, it has a solid frame of velvety tannins and seamless freshness with a very long finish of exotic spice. 395 cases were made. - LPB

Savory aromatics and deep, pliant fruit give the wine a sensual allure that is hard to describe. The balance of fruit, acid and structure is compelling. There is terrific focus and drive to the 2016. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2016 for at least a few years. -- Antonio Galloni

Beautiful sweet red fruits, passion fruit, Christmas spice, and orange rind notes all flow to a medium-bodied, vibrant Pinot Noir that has integrated acidity, fine tannins, and outstanding length. It’s going to benefit from a year or two in bottle and keep for upwards of a decade.

Wine Spectator, December 2018
Well-structured, with intense and rich-tasting forest floor notes accenting the dried red fruit and berry flavors. The creamy finish lingers with cocoa powder and spice elements. Drink now through 2022. 395 cases made. — KM

Tightly structured, it's peppery, intense and tannic, with concentrated fruit flavors of pomegranate and cassis. A lingering note of black tea marks the finish. Enjoy from 2021–2026. VIRGINIE BOONE
