Critical Acclaim

"The fragrant raspberry and blackberry aromas are riveting, with floral notes. Intense and concentrated, yet delicate and lively, with cleansing acidity and a sharp focus on the beam of ripe berry flavors. Ends with gentle tannins and a lingering finish."
97 Points

"The 2002 Pinot Noir Three Sisters’ fragrant nose of flowers interwoven with blueberries and forest floor is reminiscent of a grand cru from the Cotes de Nuit. The wine has fabulous fruit on the attack, beautiful structure, medium to full body, and a purity and almost ethereal lightness of being despite significant richness and intensity."
96 Points

"Less expressive on the nose than the Bondi, hinting at spices, smoke and underbrush. Fat, round and sweet, but not as showy today as the Bondi. Notes of raspberry, earth, smoke and truffle. Comes across as less evolved, and yet the tannins are a bit dustier."
92 Points
