Tasting Notes

Outstanding
An attractively fresh, cool and elegant nose combines notes of red and blue pinot fruit, spice, rose petal and Asian-style tea nuances. There is good verve and fine delineation to the vibrant, complex and supple middle weight flavors that deliver excellent length on the dusty and once again youthfully austere finale. This lovely effort should reward from 6 to perhaps 9 years of cellar time. Drink: 2021+

Score: 92Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (64), October 2016

Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2013 Cornish Point Pinot Noir is a little closed on the nose showing nuances of black fruits, mossy bark and fertile loam with a floral undercurrent. Medium bodied with a great core of expressive red and black cherry flavors supported by firm grainy tannins and just enough acid, it finishes long with a herbal lift.

Score: 92+Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (216), December 2014

Good deep, saturated red. Sappy, explosive aromas of cherry and dark raspberry. Boasts an outstanding core of berry fruit and spice flavors, with a saline impression of extract adding another dimension. Finishes dense and rich but youthfully tight, with serious intensity and length. Still a baby.

Score: 91+Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com, September 2014

Ripe aromas of dark cherries and summer berries, interwoven with smoky oak; tannins more or less integrated. Drink soon. Drink 2016-2020.
