Wine Advocate | Rating: 91The 2009 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard is a dense, broad-shouldered Pinot with plenty of spicy dark fruit flavors, good balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will benefit from 1-2 years of additional cellaring and will offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2021+.Author: Jay Miller
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Velvety and generous, delivering a lithe mouthful of orange peel-scented raspberry and guava flavors that linger effortlessly against creamy, polished tannins.Author: Harvey Steiman
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89Vivid ruby. Cherry, blackberry, anise and mocha on the pungent nose. Oak-spiced dark berry flavors pick up sweetness and a hint of anise with air and show very good depth. Chewy and focused on the finish, with the dark berry quality clinging with good tenacity. This drinks well now with some air, but I'd age it for at least another couple of years.Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: July/August 2011
