94pts Vinous

Shimmering magenta. A highly fragrant bouquet evokes fresh cherry and red berries, potpourri and savory herbs, and a smoky nuance emerges as the wine opens up. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry, boysenberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors accented by allspice and vanilla flourishes. Concentrated yet lively as well, showing impressive finishing power, repeating florality and smooth, well-judged tannins.

94pts Wine Spectator

Dynamic and multilayered, with tiers of wild red berry, sandalwood and mineral laced with a hint of eucalyptus. Builds richness and tension on the way to refined tannins. Drink now through 2029. 565 cases made.

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Noir The Sum has pretty scents of saline, prosciutto, potpourri and earth with a core of bright red berry fruit. The palate is delicate, super silky and fresh with floral-laced fruits and a long, elegant finish with loads of lift. Drink through 2026.

93pts James Suckling

The use of 50% whole clusters here makes for a bright rendition of red cherry and plum with sappy, light herbal accents and deeper, spiced darker-berry tones. The palate is rich and sweeps broad strikes of plush, ripe and fine, soft tannins. Darker berries pervade the finish with blueberries, too.

Winemaker Notes

Amassed from multiple vineyard blocks and clones, this wine has a timeless beauty that can be inherently understood by innate human nature. Wines of this stature, much like great art, reflect the complex and compelling relationship between humanity and Earth. Expressing Autumn, Σ (The Sum) leads with Gala apple, Japanese plum, gun powder, dirt, and garlic powder on the nose, with barely ripe cherry on the finish. 60% whole-cluster fermentation bolsters the wine, sustaining the tannic imprint and tension that uncoils like a rattlesnake strike on the finish.
