91 Points - "This is great, inviting varietal wine, juicy in blueberry and lavender with an intensity fruity middle. Varietal notions of exotic spice and earthiness complement the up-front richness that makes the wine so inviting, giving it complexity and lasting intrigue." - Wine Enthusiast
90 Points - "The 2017 Pinot Noir Torrey Hill Vineyard is pale ruby in the glass and has an earthy/meaty nose with notes of aniseed, licorice and dried flowers over a bright red cherry and berry core plus peppery hints. The palate is light-bodied, red fruited and very soft, with an herbal finish." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
91 Points - "The 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley was brought up in 22% new French oak and offers a light ruby color as well as spicy notes of raspberries, strawberries, flowers, and incense. It's a charming forward, ready to go effort that has plenty of character." - Jeb Dunnuck
Brilliant pale ruby in the glass, our 2017 RRV pinot noir showcases the classic qualities of our AVA. Black cherry and bright raspberry mingle with cinnamon stick, cola, and exotic spices. Bright acidity plays with whisper soft tannins that melt into a long, lingering finish of rich red fruits. A luxurious mid-palate texture rounds out the package. Pretty and feminine, this is an easy drinking pinot noir.
