Wine Advocate | Rating: 94Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard has a lovely earth-dominated nose with notes of tar, black soil, underbrush and fungi over a core of mulberries, black berries and black cherries plus a hint of anise. Light to medium-bodied, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and uplifting acidity supporting the muscular, earthy flavors, finishing chewy. 550 cases were made.Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
JamesSuckling.com | Rating: 95Rustic and red rock sort of character with tile. Dried cherry. Medium body, fine tannins that are velvety at the same time. Lovely length and beauty. Intellectual wine. Drink now.Author: James Suckling
Vinous | Rating: 94The 2014 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard is delicate, nuanced and understated. Even so, there is plenty of underlying grip. Rose petal, cranberry, chalk and white pepper add aromatic intensity in the upper register, while the tannins give the wine its vibrancy and energy. Even with all of its obvious appeal, the 2014 is tightly wound and in need of cellaring.Author: Antonio Galloni
