Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Tangy acidity wraps around tightly wound tannin and subtle oak in this expressive wine, generous in cola spice, black raspberry and refreshing acidity. Full bodied, it shows weight and grace in equal measure.
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2014 Pinot Noir Estate offers loads of black cherry and strawberry fruit, some underbrush and forest floor notes. It is medium to full-bodied, deep, surprisingly dark in color and quite long. This is outstanding and a real sleeper selection to drink over the next decade or more.
