Wine Advocate

91 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dry River's 2018 Pinot Noir boasts scents of earth, cola and plum. It's plush and atypically soft on the medium-bodied palate—no doubt the product of a warm vintage—which makes it approachable now, yet it appears to have the concentration required to age gracefully for up to a decade." 07/21

Vinous Media

97 Points, Rebecca GIbb MW, Vinous: "One of the most charming and gentle expressions of Martinborough Pinot Noir you'll find, with its depth of fruit akin to holding a heavy ball in the palm of your hand, such is its midpalate weight. There's an abundance of tannins, but they are as resolved as tannins get, lightly coating the palate. The fruit was picked a little earlier than usual due to the warmth of the season in a bid to preserve tension and also keep the alcohol level at a very reasonable 13%. The acidity provides freshness and precision, giving the wine length and shape. While primary fruit is not front and center, on the finish it blossoms, offering cherries, cinnamon and clove spice. A very complete wine." 3/21

James Suckling

94 Points, James Suckling, "A very complex nose with plenty of forest-floor and leafy aromas across red cherries, herbs and spiced-woody notes. The palate has a very plush and open-knit feel with fresh red cherries and bright, zesty acidity. Neat and fresh. Drink or hold." 02/21
