93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley, which contains a 1% splash of Petit Verdot, has a medium garnet color and opens with spicy notes of dried flowers, blood orange, cherries and mossy bark. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated and layered with bright freshness and a grainy structure to support, finishing long and flavorful. 440 cases produced.
This is one of those. Dark and bright, it ticks the rich fruit complexity boxes with a flourish. It has that ethereal spiciness and baking cherry charm of Anderson Valley, but there’s a meatiness and weight behind it that gives the wine a fuller, deeper feel.
