International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90Bright violet. Smoky red and dark berry scents, with notes of underbrush and dried flowers. Black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by tangy acidity and pick up hints of charred meat and herbs with aeration. Bright and nicely concentrated wine, with very good finishing clarity and lingering herbal notes. Complex already.Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: July/August 2011
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Tangy, with a live-wire backbone of acid and tannins against refined cherry, pepper and nutmeg flavors, gliding easily into the long, graceful finish. Best from 2013 through 2019.Author: Harvey Steiman
Wine Advocate | Rating: 89The 2009 Pinot Noir McCrone Vineyard delivers a perfume of earthy minerals, spicy red fruits, and incense in a straightforward style. Savory and medium-bodied in the glass, this slightly one-dimensional offering is meant for drinking over the next 6-7 years.Author: Jay Miller
