Antonio Galloni

96 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Schock Family Vineyard is fabulous and also a big step up from the 2017. In this range, the Schock Pinot is marked by its bright acids and beams of supporting tannin, both of which give tremendous drive. Dark red cherry, plum, graphite, licorice and crushed rocks develop in the glass as this gorgeous, captivating Pinot shows off its considerable charms. In a word: superb!" 08/20


93 Points, Matthew Luczy, Decanter: "From a sandy site just east of the Sta. Rita Hills border, this gives off a nose of pine needles, red plums and black cherries. Its texture is forward and focused right down the center of the palate, ending with a saline, energetic finish of blueberry and apple skin. 15% whole cluster fermentation, 18 months in 10% new barrique." 07/20


93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, "The 2018 Pinot Noir Shock Family comes all from Santa Barbara County and was 90% destemmed and brought up in 15% new French. This intense, perfumed beauty has loads of Bing cherry, mulberry, and sassafras notes, medium-bodied richness, some firm, grippy tannins, and a good finish. Give bottles a year or three and enjoy through 2030." 08/20
