Heather Wall Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Medium bodied lovely from California. Lots of red fruit - red cherry, pomegranate, plums,some earthiness, oak, and herbs. Everything together so subtle but rich and sure to be a favourite. If only we got more of Mark West at LCBO. Until then I'm California Dreamin'.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

An exceptionally well balanced wine with well defined fruit and barrel aromas of tart and black cherry, white pepper, vanillla, herbs and 'barnyard'. The mouth-feel is very rich for a pinot noir and is mainly dark cherry and cranberry. A fantastic blend of old-word aromas and new-world flavours.
Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Another great vintage from this producer. Medium ruby in colour with soft tannins, mouthwatering and intense with flavours of Black cherry, raspberry, baking spices, black pepper, and typically earthy Pinot notes.
Rich, refreshing elegance.
Drink now, or cellar for 3 - 5 years.
Pair with duck breast, or lamb stew.
Date tasted August 2014.
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Medium bodied, a lovely Pinot Noir with a bit of pepper on the nose and a rich cherry and dark plum aroma. Also slight notes of earth and spices. The same tart cherry and cranberry on the palate.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Cherry, vanilla, and overtones of mushroom/wet leaves. Cherry, cocoa and mint palate. Very good Pinot character. Cedar planked salmon
Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful ripe red fruit aromas, plum, raspberry and cherry. Easy drinking light and lively red.
Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:

Earthy aromas, cherry pit, red berries, some spice. Palate follows similar profile, plus moderate oak. Light to medium body, dry.
