Monique Sosa rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Rustic and delicious! Stewed black cherry, spice, leather and earthy underbrush notes dominate the flavours. A classic cool Pacific Coast California Pinot Noir and a food-friendly wine. Enjoy with hearty stews and braises. Tasted Oct 2017 by @sommsosa | @sommguidetravels
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rich, round and ripe, earthy, with aged leather, ripe raspberry, dark cherry. Medium body, well balanced medium acidity, tannins and alcohol. Paired well with braised mergez sausage, and would suggest it equally well with roast rack of lamb or cedar plank salmon. Tasted 2014 in Oct 2017. 90 points. @BespokeTastings
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Bright cherry and earthiness on the nose, ripe cherry, raspberry, smoke and tobacco lead to a long earthy cherry finish.

Natalie's Review

Talbott Kali Hart Pinot Noir 2014, Monterey County, California, United States: Supple, seductive and fleshy ripe red berries on the nose and palate of this ultra-smooth, round and lip-smacking delicious southern Californian Pinot Noir. Sweet cherries emerge on the finish. Medium-bodied, juicy and supple with silky texture. Great price. Drink: 2017-2020. 317693 14.30% D 750 mL  $28.95 Score: 91/100.

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.
