Wine AdvocateThe pale to medium ruby-purple 2016 Pinot Noir Estate has a wonderful open nose of black cherry, blueberry pie, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, warm earth and autumn leaves with pretty red and blue flower perfume. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with black and blue fruits layers plus oodles of spice and flower notes, with fine, grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing very long and layered.
Wine SpectatorSupple and refined, with elegantly complex black cherry, tea and spice box flavors that persist toward polished tannins.
Wine EnthusiastA pleasing bouquet of violets, cherries and cola introduces this wine. The fruit shines on the palate, with flavors of mixed red and blue berries. The balance is spot on and the wine is ready for near-term enjoyment.
