92pts, The Tasting Panel - "Juicy and bright with tangy cherry and raspberry; fresh and crisp with lovely notes of oak, tea and spice; long, balanced and elegant."
91pts, International Wine Review - "The Pinot Noir Russian River Selection is a blend of eight top vineyard sources in Russian River Valley. It is bold and earthy in style with pomegranate, dark plum and spice. It exhibits crisp acidity with firm tannins and a fine long finish."
WE 90 WA 88 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "There are equal parts strawberry and earth in this Pinot, sourced from the who’s who of vineyard sites in Russian River, including Toboni, Hallberg, Floodgate, Rochioli and Bacigalupi. The components come together in mesmerizing ways, making for a balanced and restrained Pinot that’s fresh in strawberry and cherry as well as seasonings of herb and cinnamon spice"
According to Robert Parker - "The dark ruby-hued 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River reveals a seductive bouquet of black cherries, plums, earth, spice and a hint of oak. Medium-bodied, well-balanced, pure and Burgundian, it should drink well for 5-6 years."
According to Wine & Spirits - "Supple and as plump as a ripe Bing cherry, with oak-driven aromas of cedar and vanilla, this is a simple and appealing Russian River pinot noir, its forward fruit ready to pour with a roast bird over the holidays."
Tasting Notes - "This wine exudes enticing aromas of fresh strawberries, wild cherry preserves, cinnamon and nutmeg, which give way to an intriguing combination of oyster mushrooms, cola, cedar and an elderberry reduction glaze. With bright acidity and decadent fruit, this focused and elegant wine is enveloped by caressing soft-grained tannins and displays a pleasant, lingering finish." 14.1% ABV.
