Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2017)
More complex, darker-fruited and richer than Giant Steps' other 2017s, the 2017 Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir combines Clones 115, MV6 and Pommard. Musky underbrush, humus and sassafras notes add nuance to the black cherry fruit and subtle oak (25% new French). It's medium-bodied, with silky but sturdy tannins that suggest it will outlive its stablemates. Drink now and up to 2025.

James Halliday (JH) : 95 Points (2016)
Sexton Vineyard is in the Lower Yarra Valley, at 230m, MV6 clone, wild-fermented in a 4000l oak vat, 20% whole bunches, matured in French oak (25% new) for 11 months. Deep colour; the bouquet breathes black cherries, dark spices, the palate the fullest and more plummy than either Primavera or (at the other extreme) Applejack. Overall, the most powerful, but most closed/reductive of the trio

James Suckling (JS) : 97 Points (2015)
The most cerebral, layered, spicy and complex of the 2015 Giant Steps single-vineyard wines, this has a handy mix of savory and sweet aromas. There are cloves, chalky/stony smells, saffron and a swirling array of rose-like fragrances. It's really engaging and gently herbal, opening up into warmed, peppery spices and some musky florals, too. The palate is cut with finesse and detail and is really engaging and structurally complex for a pinot. The tannins strike the gentlest of grainy textures through fine pastry-like layers of fruit. Meanwhile, hints of blood-orange flavors meet crunchy red cherries and wild raspberries. Elegant yet powerful. Superb — their best to date. Delicious enough to drink now, but you'd be mad not to give it 5+ years. There is much to come!

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 93 Points (2015)
Brilliant ruby-red. High-pitched, expansive red berry liqueur and potpourri aromas are complicated by suggestions of Asian spices, candied rose and smoky minerals. Sappy, finely etched red fruit and spicecake flavors gain depth and power with aeration while maintaining a sense of finesse. Sappy, seamless and impressively pure on the impressively long finish, which is given shape by silky, well-integrated tannins.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17 Points (2015)
Superbly pure red fruit with a lovely gentle balance. Good fine tannic fuzz and well-integrated acid. Pretty firm and structural, and the flavours are very newborn. (RH)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2014)
Editor's Choice - Phil Sexton's wines under the Giant Steps label are becoming more consistent, and the 2014s may be his best yet. This is a medium- to full-bodied wine, with a supple, creamy texture and lingering notes of spring flowers and black cherries. Subtle oaking adds brown sugar and mocha shadings to the crisp finish. Drink now–2022.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2014)
Perfumed, with dried lavender, rose petal and mineral details against a core of fresh, velvety cranberry and strawberry flavors, balancing intensity and elegance. Drink now through 2026
