Vinous | Rating: 93Always one of the most distinctive wines in the range, the 2015 Pinot Noir Giusti Ranch packs a serious punch. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice, menthol licorice and dark spices imbue the Giusti with real personality and class. The 2015 has ample broad shoulders and tons of personality, all in a decidedly dark, powerful style.Author: Antonio Galloni

JamesSuckling.com | Rating: 96Extremely opulent and vivid on the nose with blackberry, blueberry and flower. Full body, velvety tannins and wonderful energy. Vivid and powerful. Real Russian River pinot with a modern clarity. Drink or hold.Author: James Suckling
