“Launching forth with vivid, mouth-watering, fresh fruit flavors this dazzling discovery caught our attention immediately! The thrill ride continues with deftly balanced sweet raspberry, blood orange, and black tea. This is a delightfully pure new Pinot that reminds us of early Kistler and is guaranteed pair well with a wide variety of menus. Well worth 96 points now and possibly higher over the next 3 – 5 years. Decant prior to 2023.” - California Wine Advisors

“The 2017 Pinot Noir Gloria Estate is a gorgeous, super-expressive wine. Ample in feel, but also translucent and finessed, the Gloria is a Pinot of understated beauty. Rose petal, mint and crushed red berries are all beautifully lifted in this precise, wonderfully nuanced Pinot. 94 points.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“Excellent depth and complexity bring this concentrated wine to a high level of deliciousness. It offers deep, brooding aromas of black cherry, clove and forest floor followed by mouthfilling and focused flavors of black cherry and sour cherry that linger on the finish. 94 Points - Editor’s Choice." - Wine Enthusiast

Winery Notes: “After the more restrained 2016 vintage, the 2017 Gloria Estate is back to the fuller-bodied style typical of the Russian River Valley. With deep, dark color, this blackberry- and vanilla-scented Pinot has a lush mouthfeel, balanced beautifully by high acidity. The 2017 is already drinking well just six months after bottling, but with its larger frame and impeccable balance, it should last right through the 2020s.”
