92 pts James Suckling June 2019
A crisp and focused young pinot with crushed-strawberry and subtle orange-peel character. Creamy texture. Medium body. Vivid fruit at the finish. Tight and reserved. Better in a year or two. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
93 pts Wine Enthusiast Editors’ Choice August 2019
This wine is pretty and autumnal, a fragrant concoction of cherries, plums, sumac, wild herbs and flowers, dried leaves and damp earth after a soft rain. This softness carries through to the palate, but there’s also a laser-like line of acidity lifting the fruit into tart, crunchy territory. Tannins are fine grained, supporting and not overwhelming. A phenolic bitter note rears up at the finish, but overall this is a textural, food-friendly wine to drink now or until 2026.
