Wine Spectator | Rating: 93Firm and focused, with powdery tannins around a lively core of rose petal-infused raspberry and blackberry flavors, gliding into a long and expressive finish marked by minerally notes of wet stone. Best from 2018 through 2024. 1,400 cases made.Author: Harvey Steiman
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17From the upper portion of the historic Seven Springs vineyard. Aged in 30% new Ermitage barrels for 16 months. Opening with aromatics of mushroom reduction and fresh berries, the palate evolves into bright bursts of cranberry and a persistent wash of mineral sapidity. The tannins are pleasantly fine and resolved here coupled with mouth-watering acidity carrying through a long finish. Nice cohesiveness and completeness. This wine becomes more savoury with air also gaining accents of powdery birch bark, while still retaining a bright fruit lift. Drink now for a focus on freshness or hold it in the cellar to gain additional depth and complexity. Will evolve well with time in the cellar. (ECB)Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The 2014 Pinot Noir la Source Seven Springs Vineyard, which from 2012 has only come from the upper part of the vineyard, includes around 50% whole cluster fruit. It has a very Burgundy-inspired bouquet with damp leaves and mulch-like scents infusing the red berry fruit. The delineation is very impressive here and it conveys a very natural style. The palate is medium-bodied with a gorgeous entry, very well defined with pure dark cherries and blueberry fruit, very well-judged acidity and a smooth finish offering just a hint of cassis. This is a lovely Pinot Noir that will age supremely well.Author: Neal Martin
