    Wine Enthusiast:  "This is an impressive selection from Winemaker Jeff Pisoni. A hint of forest-floor spice and strong flavors of dark cherry and orange combine on a light, silky texture. This offers a great sense of finesse within a framework of structure and freshness." Oct 2018

    James Suckling:  "A vibrant, red-fruited style of pinot that has a wealth of gently grippy tannins and a convincingly long palate that holds a clear, juicy finish."  Nov 2018

    Jeb Dunnuck:  "The 2016 Pinot Noir Sea Slopes is another terrific value from this estate. Cherries, strawberries, spice, and an undeniable salty, marine-like minerality give way to a fresh, elegant, medium-bodied effort that shows the cooler, complex style of the Sonoma Coast appellation. Bravo."  Jun 2018

    Winery:  "An expressive ruby, this alluring Pinot Noir interweaves bing cherry, cranberry, hibiscus and lilac aromas with a touch of dried rose petals mixed with orange peel. The supple entry leads to wild strawberry, pomegranate, currant and juicy black plum with fine tannins. The elegant, structured layers of pure fruit vibrantly evolve into the bright, energetic, finish."
