Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Ripe cherry and raspberry jam dominate the nose. Soft tannins and bright acidity. The oak treatment, 8.5 months in French oak, 31% new, is mild and integrated in this fruit-driven Pinot. There's a touch of wood and some cocoa while the fruits keep shining brightly amidst a whiff of forest floor. Unmistakably Californian in ripeness, but with more grace than most. Ideal for chicken, pork, salmon, and tuna dishes.
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby colour, full bodied, pronounced nose, dry, medium acidity and tannin. Nice earthiness in the aroma, with baking spice and aromas of blackberry, blueberry and darker fruits. Tastes of vanilla, baking spice, cherry, and blueberry. Aged in French oak barrels, 30% new and 70% neutral. Well worth seeking out.

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.
