93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The pale to medium ruby colored 2017 Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard was aged ten months in 40% new French oak. It has inviting, open-knit aromas of cranberry sauce, wild blackberries, blood orange, clove and turned earth plus notes of amaro and tobacco. The silky, light to medium-bodied palate offers lovely, earth-tinged fruits with a grainy, fresh frame and long, layered finish.
93pts James Suckling
Sweet-and-sour character to this with dried strawberry, toasted-oak and lime undertones. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a creamy finish. Contrastive. Drink or hold.
91pts Wine Spectator
The lithe flavors of red plum, raspberry and cherry pastry feature sandalwood and cedar accents, backed by medium-grained tannins. Plump, spicy finish
90pts Wine Enthusiast
There are savory iodine and sanguine kicks to the nose of this bottling, with dried boysenberry and leather aromas as well. That earthy, meaty element carries to the sip, where dried cherry and shiitake mushroom flavors show.
The 2017 Sleepy Hollow Pinot Noir is a distinctive expression of the world-class wine consistently produced in our Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. Our flagship Pinot Noir offers aromas of cola, clove and opulent plum and blackberry. Luscious notes of black cherry, raspberry and vanilla deliver a rich, mouth-filling texture. Underlying minerality, vibrant acidity and well-heeled tannins add to the complex finish of this elegant, luxurious Pinot Noir.
