Lori Kilmartin WSET3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The Wagner family have been making top quality wines in California since the 1850's. Their Sea Sun line is comprised of a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir - two popular grapes that are sourced from various vineyards over several hundred miles.

This Pinot hails from vineyards in Monterey, Solano and San Luis Obispo. Aromas of beet, rhubarb, ripe cherry and oak with earthy undertones. Very fruit forward on the palate with flavours of ripe black cherry and spice. Medium acidity and soft tannins that balance nicely with all that fruit. Medium/full body with 14.2% alcohol and a medium finish. This wine would pair well with roast pork and chicken dishes. Tasted March 22/2022

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
