Wine Spectator | Rating: 90Offers direct, rich and deep red and dark berry flavors that are spicy, pleasantly tannic and chewy, ending with a pure, rich burst of fruit that tails off into drying tannins. Tasted twice with consistent notes. Drink now. 6,935 cases made.Author: James Laube
Vinous | Rating: 90The 2014 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is another delicious appellation-level Pinot. Sweet floral and spice notes give the 2014 much of its delicate, understated personality. Medium bodied and gracious, the 2014 is all about finesse, delicacy and balance. It should drink well for the next handful of years.Author: Antonio Galloni
Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The last of the appellation releases, the 2014 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was brought up in 55% new French oak, which is slightly more than the 2013. Deep, rich and earthy, with notes of bouquet garni, smoked earth, licorice and dark fruits, it has full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate and is packed with gorgeous amounts of fruit. It's a big, rich wine from this cool climate appellation, yet I suspect it will show more classic Sonoma Coast characteristics with a year or two in bottle. It's a beautiful wine.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
