Vinous 90 points - Brilliant ruby-red. Strawberry and raspberry on the perfumed nose, along with suggestions of allspice and smoky minerals. Deeper and darker in character on the palate, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors, with a hint of white pepper adding vivacity. This lithe, nicely focused Pinot finishes with appealing sweetness, easygoing tannins and very good persistence.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2013 Pinot Noir is a charming, forward, and delicious Pinot Noir that offers plenty of dark cherry and strawberry fruits in a medium-bodied, lightly textured, juicy style. Well-made, pretty and straightforward, you could do a lot worse for the money and it should have plenty of appeal over the coming 2-3 years.
