2019 Earl Stephens Pinot Noir

Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine
"Here is a Pinot Noir that clearly inclines to ripeness, but it does so without seeming at all overdone, and, from first sniff to finish, its principal message is one of healthy, slightly juicy, dark cherry fruit. It does betray a scant trim of heat at the finish that does nothing to lessen its ongoing impressions of fruity richness and depth, and its nominal tannins afford a nice bit of age worthy firmness without sitting heavily on its very long- lasting fruit. It can be enjoyed now and is not dependent on age, but we see more complexity and polish ahead and would lay it away for least a few years before bringing it out as a foil to a well-seasoned rack of lamb." 91 Points

Wine Enthusiast
"Beautiful, edgy flavors of rhubarb and sour cherries join ripe black cherries in this powerfully fruity wine. Savory touches of pine and mint add extra interest, while subtle oak spices from 35% new French barrels hardly intrude on the fruit. Light tannins and good balance make it especially mouth-watering." 95 Points

2019 Twenty Leaf Pinot Noir

Wine Enthusiast
"Measured oak spice and warm, ripe black-fruit flavors add allure to this fullbodied wine. Moderate tannins and good acidity help shape delicious black cherries and dark plums. All the wine was aged in French oak barrels, 30% of which were new." 93 Points
