Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Plump and juicy, featuring a supple core of plum, blackberry and raspberry flavors, turning spicy and loamy, with a hint of black licorice. The fruit shines and holds your attention. Elegant throughout. Drink now through 2023. 1,158 cases made.Author: James Laube
Vinous | Rating: 94The 2014 Pinot Noir Treehouse is more typical of the Russian River in its boisterous, racy personality and dark fruit profile. Black cherry, cola, spice and menthol are some of the many notes that flesh out in this ample, resonant Pinot. Richly textured and phenolic in feel, the Treehouse is another winner from CIRQ and proprietor Michael Browne.Author: Antonio Galloni
