94pts, The Pinot Report - Another instant classic Pinot Noir from Gary’s Vineyard. Huge nose of deep black cherry and raspberry that makes you want to crawl into the glass. Plush, yet nicely structured mouth-feel, which gives way to a long finish highlighted by dark berry flavors and minerality.
WA (88-91) WS 91 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - My favorite of the Santa Lucia Highland releases, the 2013 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard has plenty of darker berry fruits, earthy forest floor, baking spice and spring flower notes to go with a medium to full-bodied, balanced and nicely textured style on the palate. I like the mid-palate here, but it drops off slightly on the finish, so it will be interesting to see how this ends up. It should be a very good, possibly outstanding bottle of Pinot with 3-5 years of longevity.
According to Wine Spectator - mplex aromas translate to vibrant and fresh flavors of plum, blueberry and raspberry, with fine-grained tannins. Gains depth and persistence on the finish. Drink now through 2022.14.3% ABV.
