99pts Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2021 Pinot Noir Bodega Ridge Vineyard opens with profound earthy notes of damp soil, black truffles, charcoal, and crushed rocks, leading to a core of fresh blackberries and mulberries, plus a waft of wild sage. The medium-bodied palate is taut and tight-knit with black fruit and earthy layers supported by silt-like tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and savory.

98pts Vinous

The 2021 Pinot Noir Bodega Ridge Vineyard is a wine of pure and total sensuality. Dark red/purplish fruit, orange peel, cinnamon, new leather, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco give the 2021 striking aromatic presence to play off its mid-weight personality. The 2021 Bodega Ridge is all class, but it is the most reticent of the wines today. It manages to bring together all the elements that define these wines, namely serious fruit concentration, backed by vertical, explosive structure.

97pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2021 Pinot Noir Bodega Ridge Vineyard is tightly coiled to begin, slowly unfurling pure aromas of raspberry and pomegranate, shiitake mushrooms, iodine, pipe tobacco, licorice and tremendous floral perfume. The light-bodied palate is more open at this youthful stage, bursting with expressive red fruit. It's structurally seamless, its powerful, velvety tannins balanced by focused acidity that drives the wine forward, and it has a very long finish with a kaleidoscopic array of spicy accents. It gained weight and nuance for several days after the bottle was opened and will be long lived in the cellar.

96pts Wine Spectator

This gorgeous wine offers a core of sappy kirsch, cherry and mulberry fruit that manages to stay light on its feet even as waves of black tea, iris, blood orange, applewood and incense notes emerge steadily through the mouthwatering finish. Youthfully packed, with coiled energy giving the tension this needs for the longer haul.
