Wine Spectator | Rating: 88Rich and alive, with zesty blackberry, raspberry and wild berry flavors that are pure and vivid, well-supported by firm tannins and a backbone of acidity. Drink now through 2023. 800 cases made.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 98The 2014 Pinot Noir UV-SL is made from both the Vosne-Romanee and Calera clones of Pinot Noir. This is pure Sonoma Coast Pinot, with a sweet nose of root beer, blackcurrants, black cherries, and forest floor. It is the most densely colored of all four Pinot Noirs, and shows the biggest body, structure and richness. I also think it's the most concentrated. This is an amazing wine and may have been the best 2014 Pinot Noir I tasted on this last trip. It should drink well for 10-15+ years.Author: Robert Parker
