Vinous | Rating: 94The 2013 Pinot Noir Quarter Moon Vineyard is another very pretty and highly nuanced wine. Rose petal, mint, savory herbs, pine and crushed rocks inform a focused, chiseled Pinot that is all about delineation. Floral and savory notes from the whole clusters add tons of character and dimension. There is so much to like here.Author: Antonio Galloni
Wine Advocate | Rating: 86The 2013 Pinot Noir Quarter Moon Vineyard was one of the less impressive wines, slightly tart, edgy and austere, with a somewhat clipped and monolithic style. Notes of dark fruits, earth and spice were present, but the acidity was intrusive. Drink now-2025.Author: Robert Parker
