Critical Acclaim

"credible richness, density and concentration, with a tight backbone. The core black cherry, wild berry and raspberry are ripe and effusive, with hints of rose petal and cranberry, and touches of hazelnut and nutmeg. The finish sails on, returning to the rich flavor themes that are woven together in a tight yet seamless and persistent manner."
97 Points

"Very good red color. Reticent but pure nose offers up minerals, smoke and forest floor scents. Large-scaled and wonderfully sweet yet almost magically light on its feet. In fact, this wine is rather tight and racy now, with superb cut. Explosive flavors emerged with some swirling: raspberry, minerals, mocha, smoke, spices and earth. This has the combination of nervosite and complex soil tones that would kick most Burgundies off the table. Superb mounting finish.
Rating: 94+"

"Fragrant aromas of damp earth, fresh mushrooms, gravel, anise, plums, and cherries emerge from the 2001 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge, which reveals this vineyard’s distinctive perfume and singular quality. An atypical notion of herbaceousness is also present."
