Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Combines pure, ripe plum and raspberry fruit with touches of fresh earth, anise and lavender, graced by the right mix of acidity and tannins. Tightens on the finish in a good way, with the tannins giving the flavors traction. Drink now through 2022. 89 cases made.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95Made from the top four barrels in the winery, the 2013 Pinot Noir 4 Barrel gives up the darker, richer fruit profile that is common from this estate to go with beautiful notes of caramelized black cherries, spice, vanilla bean and rose petal. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and surprisingly elegant (this cuvee is normally more of a bruiser), it still has a touch of oak to integrate, so give it a year or two in the cellar.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
