Wine Spectator | Rating: 90An elegant, graceful style, with red berry, strawberry and watermelon notes that are also quite firm and concentrated, ending with a long, lingering finish.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94One of my favorites in the lineup, the 2012 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard shows its 15% whole cluster fermentation with the darker fruit, ground pepper, herbs and background meatiness that shows on the nose. A rich, full-flavored, yet still seamless and elegant Pinot Noir, it has solid underlying structure and beautiful focus that comes through on the finish. It can be consumed anytime over the coming 5-7 years.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
Vinous | Rating: 93The 2012 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is the most complete of the four Santa Lucia Highlands Pinots. Beautifully layered in the glass, the Garys' offers lovely mid-palate juiciness and plenty of generosity. Dark red cherry, mint, violet and spice overtones add nuance on a creamy, expressive finish.Author: Antonio Galloni
