“This beauty will appeal to both Cult Pinot fans from California and Burgundy. It’s redolent of raspberry and candied orange peel perfume. Savory and as sophisticated, with a gorgeous core of ripe cherry and pomegranate fruit backed by cassis, chamomile tea and baking spice components that lead to a captivating finish.” - California Wine Advisors (10/11/18)

“Graceful and charming, with wonderful plum and wilted rose scents, and a trim beam of lively cherry and raspberry offset by loamy earth and spice. Fine-grained tannins promise textural polish. Drink now through 2026.” - Wine Spectator (4/18)
