"Dark mulberry, black raspberry and slate start the nose of this bottling from one of the region's most coastal vineyards, but then comes a tremendous amount of black sage, Earl Grey tea and the slightest touch of game on the nose. Dark-berry flavors are cut by thyme and lavender on the palate, which is rich yet fresh, tart and lovely." - Wine Enthusiast, 96 points

"Strawberries, violets, citrus blossom, and some exotic passion fruit characteristics all emerge from the 2016 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard, a pretty, elegant, perfumed wine that has tons to love. Possessing medium-bodied richness, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean finish, it's one of the more vibrant, racy wines in the lineup. Give bottles 2-3 years of bottle age and it will keep for 10-15 years or more. This cuvée spent 17 months in one-third new French oak." - JebDunnuck.com, 93 points

"Pale to medium ruby, [this wine] opens with warm cinnamon, wild blackberries, black and red cherries, dried leaves, potpourri and dusty earth scents. The light to medium-bodied palate gives up good fruit concentration, great juicy acidity and soft, grainy tannins, finishing long." - Wine Advocate, 92 points
