James Suckling (JS) : 96 Points (2016)
Incredible clarity and purity of dark red cherries on the nose here. This is a stunning young pinot. The palate has a very plush, fleshy and concentrated core of rich black cherries with toasty oak spice overlaid. Long, noble tannins. This is exceptional.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 93 Points (2016)
The 2016 vintage defies Veronique Drouhin’s customary restraint: It’s heady with aromas of cherry and strawberry, the forward fruit feeling almost pulpy on the palate. Yet notes of tanbark and firm, spicy tannins rein it in so that the wine maintains a kind of opulent grace, rich and sleek at once.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2016)
Precise and polished, with slightly brooding black cherry and green tea flavors that fan out and build structure toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2025.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2016)
This lovely and seductive wine from a top producer delivers a supple, smooth and silky mix of orange peel, strawberry compote and chocolate bonbon flavors. At its relatively modest price, you can't hope for a better value for iconic Dundee Hills Pinot Noir. *Editors' Choice* (PG) (8/2018)

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2016)
The 2016 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple with a nose of warm red cherries, dried cranberries and crushed blueberries with accents of Earl Grey tea, dried leaves and earth. Light to medium-bodied, it has good concentration of red and blue fruits in the mouth with forest/earthy touches and cinnamon suggestions, with a good frame of fine-grained tannins and lovely juicy acidity, finishing long and spicy. (EB) (8/2018)

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2015)
Brilliant red. Fresh cherry and raspberry on the nose, complicated by candied rose, licorice and musky earth flourishes. Juicy, finely etched red berry and bitter cherry flavors show very good energy, and a deeper, sweeter suggestion of cola emerges with aeration. Closes on a bright, spicy note, with sneaky tannins lending framework and grip. (JR) (1/2018)

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16.5 Points (2015)
Sweet oak – not quite intrusive but certainly has a starring role at this stage. Lovely cherry and redcurrant fruit with just enough tannic fur to give fuzzy texture but allow drinkability now. Gentle floral perfume – but from petals that are still tightly furled. 16.5+/20 points. (RH) (6/2018)

Decanter (DCT) : 94 Points (2013)
Made in a more Burgundian style, aged 8-10 months in barrel. Elegant, ripe dark fruits, cassis and violets with spicy and smoky notes. Young but pleasing.
