Monique Sosa rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Lovely cherry, floral, cinnamon spice, and tobacco aromas upfront, followed by rich scrumptious cherry, spice, cedar flavours on the palate. A gorgeous medium(trending full) bodied and elegant Pinot Noir with a long spice finish. Even though I've never tried this before, I am quite keen on pairing this Pinot with a hearty Butter Chicken Stew or an Indian Beef Curry in attempt to pair the prominent spice notes in the wine with spice notes in the Indian dishes. Tasted April 2017 @sommsosa | bespoketastinsg.ca
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Ruby red and 13% ABV. Well-balanced Oregon Pinot Noir. An enticing nose of cola and cherry, and a palate full of fruit and spice. A medium finish with persistence of cherry, mint, and savoury. Elegant and unique. Craving to pair this with beef curry or Thai beef stir fry. Pairs well with lamb, pork or poultry. Tasted the 2013 vintage in April 2017. 92 points. Lovely!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
