Wine Advocate 90 points - The new wood was increased to between 20% and 30% in 2013 for the single vineyards, yet the 2013 Pinot Noir Estate still sees only marginal new oak, while its aged in around 10% new. It offers a surprisingly ripe, rounded and soft style to go with lots of underbrush, spice, salted olives and both strawberry and raspberry fruit characteristics. Attractive, upfront and ready to go, drink it over the coming 2-4 years.  (Aug 2015)

The 2013 appellation Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is a blend of all the estate vineyards. Similar to last year’s wine, the 2013 is 50% whole bunches with 0% new oak used in the élevage. This wine has a pale red color with perfumed flavors of bing cherry, all spice and leather. The wine is soft textured and finishes with silky tannins. If properly cellared, the wine should develop aromas and flavors of great complexity over the next 7+ years.
