Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Ripe and juicy, with a rich, zesty mix of tar- and graphite-laced plum and blueberry flavors, which are supple-textured and firming nicely on the finish. The tannins show a touch of stemminess. Drink now through 2020.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 96The rich, prodigious, full-bodied 2013 Pinot Noir UV, made from the Calera and Vosne-Romanee clones, is a denser, richer wine offering abundant notes of blueberries, blackberries, forest floor and strong hints of Asian hoisin sauce, dark fruits and forest floor. There are approximately 1,000 cases of this sensational Pinot, which Mark Aubert decanted 12 hours in advance of my visit. There is not a trace of new oak in this wine, which spent 10 months in 100% new barrels. Like all the 2013 Pinot Noirs, it has a decade or more of aging potential.Author: Robert Parker

Aubert also makes several Pinot Noirs sourced from the Sonoma Coast as well as a "right-bank" Bordeaux style blend from Napa's Howell Mountain.
