93+ Points, Zachys Buying Team: "Fun from the other side of Down Under. It is a noble expression that combines elements of Russian River, Willamette Valley and Volnay and shakes it together for a juicy, rich and lively expression that is New Zealand. We are talking about gobs of red and black fruit - you can expect to find nuances of succulent black cherries, warm strawberries, red currant, raspberries, plums, blackberries, a touch of citrus, damp earth, birch, tea and spice. There is a seductive silky and creamy texture with just enough verve that furthers adds to the allure of this crowd-pleasing wine that is ready to impress today. It is the perfect Pinot Noir to serve slightly chilled for summer entertainment that will have people saying, 'What is that and can I have more?'"

James Suckling

95 Points, James Suckling: "The product of a warm, dry summer and balanced crop loads, this is a very strong vintage for this iconic Martinborough pinot noir. On the nose, plenty of fresh red cherries and spiced red plums come to the fore. Succulent, fluid and mouth-filling on the palate. The tannins are sturdy yet silky in a classic pinot style. Impressive concentration and freshness here. Screw cap. Drink or hold." 10/18

Wine Spectator

93 Points, MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator: "Expressive, starting with a core of muscular blackberry and cherry flavors that expand to Earl Grey tea, rose petal and sarsaparilla details. Pepper and fresh earth notes are robust and present on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 3,000 cases made, 500 cases imported." 10/18
