  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

    Winemaker Matt Courtney says this vineyard is in a "Goldilocks" spot, on the second ridge in from the ocean—not too exposed but just enough to make it a struggle to ripen Pinot Noir. Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir UV Lucky Well Vineyard has a wonderful nose of granite, woodsmoke, charcuterie, turned soil and potpourri over a core of ripe red and blue fruits. Light to medium-bodied, it gives loads of savory fruits in the mouth with earthy touches, framed by great juicy acidity, ripe, pixelated tannins and a very long, very savory and flavorful finish. 598 cases produced.

    Chiseled and powerful, with focused acidity supporting the wild berry, cherry and plum tart flavors. Christmas pudding notes emerge midpalate, offering a rich, creamy finish. Drink now through 2023. 598 cases made. — KM
