Here’s what the wine press has to say:
92 points - Connoiseur’s Guide to Callifornia Wine - “Sonoma County. Mild, but abundant sweet oak puts a creamy edge to the nicely ripened, very precise, wonderfully persistent fruit of this handsome young Pinot and, while the wine is light on its feet and not at all beholden to ripeness, it conveys plenty of richness and depth right from the first.
It is supple and very well-balanced with trim acidity and a long, lively finish, and its uncommon sense of polish and charm is bound to tempt drinking before it has had the chance to age into its delectable best some four or five years down the line.”
Exceptional - Dan Berger, wine writer - “Faintly rustic nose with black cherry and mid-palate weight. Plum-y finish; a bit riper than I usually like, but a lot of depth. Better in 2-4 more years. Excellent wine from Anthony Austin.
Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast - “Silky in high-toned flavors of red cherry, this is light and enjoyable. A memorable jolt of acidity on the finish nicely ties things up and gives the wine a mouthwatering quality.”
