Natalie's Score: 94/100

Luscious, elegant and superb! This is Californian pinot noir raised to its highest Platonic ideal. Forget philosophy though, and top up your glass: this is great wine. Opens with fleshy dark raspberries and some spice. The palate is liquid silk and medium- to full-bodied. The finish stretches well beyond a sigh at the end of a long day, which is exactly when you'll need this wine. This would be perfect for planked salmon or roast chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: chicken, pasta, sherry potatoes.

Incredibly dense and rich, this just rocks with luscious aromas and flavors of cherry pie, anise, mushroom and sandalwood. It feels so vital on the palate, offering real complexity and intellectual interest, as it reveals different aspects of its personality with each moment. Decant this beauty for an hour or so before serving. Source: Score: 94 (Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast, Aug. 2012) Medium-bodied & Fruity
