JS 93 Pts -According to James Suckling - "Crushed ripe strawberries with blackberries. Some mineral undertones too. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh and racy finish. Shows some granite and slate as well. Balanced, fruity style. Drink now."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "This fruity, friendly Pinot opens with ripe berry aromas mixed with touches of minerality and latex. It feels fresh and sturdy, with black cherry and raspberry flavors. A pure, sweet, lightly chocolaty finish wraps things up."
According to Wine Advocate - ".....There are more fruit than herbal aromas here, and this shows nice ripeness, combining aromas of sour cherries with lactic hints and bare traces of spicy oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good freshness and the final granite bite in the finish....."
Winemakers Notes - "Ritual Pinot Noir 2014 opens with fresh and generous fruity aromas of cherries and raspberries. Refreshing and juicy with a medium body. The palate is round, smooth and balanced with a silky, velvety finish." 14% ABV.
