2018 Mother of Pearl Chardonnay

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Dark gold in color, with a buttery creaminess, this wine is richly delicious in pear, baked lemon and a mix of baking and Asian spice. Oyster-shell-like texture adds minerality and a taste of the vineyard, so close as it is to the ocean. Virginie Boone, August 2021.

2018 The Terraces Pinot Noir

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Stemmy and earthy in forest floor, this memorably balanced, elegant and coastal wine shows a wealth of tangy red fruit, a mix of plum and wild strawberry. Sultry and seamless on the palate, the tannins are silky and well-integrated, exhibiting a graceful, high-toned freshness.Virginie Boone, August 2021.

2017 "FRV" Pinot Noir

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Robustly built and yet elegant throughout, this estate-grown wine is forested with black-tea notes that meld against a foundation of bright red berry. Ample tannin structure evolves in the glass to show a nice supple quality and flecks of crushed rock and mineral.

2019 Sea Slopes Chardonnay

Aged in both stainless steel and old French oak, this impressive white is floral on the nose and inviting in sea brine and citrus accents, reflecting its coastal provenance. Soft and supple, it offers considerable complexity and sophistication.

Demure fruit highlights a silky body of delicate, varietal layers in this well-made wine. Rounded, it offers a balanced approach to richness, an exploration of dark cherry, pomegranate, and forest floor. Virginie Boone, June 2021.

2017 Stagecoach Road Pinot Noir

94 Points - Wine Advocate, Robert Parker
The 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Stagecoach Road has slowly opening aromas of roasted cranberries and blackberries accented by potpourri, Earl Grey tea leaves, dusty earth, woodsmoke and cola. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and nuanced with loads of spicy, bitters-like accents and great freshness, finishing long and layered.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Top of Land takes its time to unfurl to cranberries and blackberries with nuances of black tea, woodsmoke, dusty earth and amaro. The medium-bodied palate is spicy and nuanced with a grainy frame and long, uplifted finish.
