"More subtle though hardly invisible wood frames slightly fresher aromas of various red berries, violet and discreet spice wisps. There is a bit more energy to the supple, round and more focused middle weight flavors that deliver both better depth and persistence on the nicely balanced finale." -Allen Meadows
"The 2018 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard opens with striking, floral-infused aromatics that give the wine presence and structure. Savory and finely cut, with superb delineation, and tons of depth, the Alpine is positively stellar today. Layers of fruit enshroud the tannins, making them barely perceptible. The 2018 is a stunning Pinot from Alpine, a site originally planted with 17 heritage clones." -Vinous
"Aromas of sweet raspberry and strawberry fruit with a touch of lemon balm. Raspberry and forest-berry pastille flavors mix with exotic herbs and flowers. Faint powdery tannins dust the palate and a faint dashi character lingers in the finish. Impeccably balanced, mouth-watering and totally, commandingly delicious."
