93 points - 2018 Temperance Hill Pinot Noir

Josh Raynolds of Vinous awarded our 2018 Temperance Hill Pinot Noir a 93 point score:

"Glistening ruby-red. Potent, spice- and mineral-accented aromas of cherry, raspberry, rose pastille, exotic spices and musky underbrush. Appealingly sweet and lively on the palate, offering intense cherry and black raspberry flavors that unfurl slowly on the back half. Shows very good depth but comes off energetic, finishing sappy and very long, with resonating spiciness and smooth, harmonious tannins." - Josh Raynolds, August 2020

90 Points - 2018 Meyer Vineyard Pinot Noir

Wine Enthusiast Magazine awarded our 2018 Meyer Vineyard Pinot Noir a 90 point score:

"Fruit purchased from this Lemelson vineyard is featured here, in a forward style that wraps in broad streaks of tobacco and cola around core fruit flavors of blackberry and cherry. It's quite young and the best drinking window is some years away, but the components are there for a quality bottle." - Paul Gregutt

This review posts in the August issue of Wine Enthusiast and at winemag.com

91 Points - 2018 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir

Wine Enthusiast Magazine awarded our 2018 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir a 91 point score:

"This stellar vineyard shines in this wine, offering firm, well-defined tones of purple and black fruit. It's polished to an almost-velvety smoothness, and the lush fruit is coated with darker flavors of coffee and chocolate" - Paul Gregutt
