2018 Sea Slopes Pinot Noir

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
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 Mother of Pearl Chardonnay

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Winemaker Jeff Pisoni works magic in this crisp, floral and stony white from the Fort Ross Vineyard estate in view of the Pacific Ocean. Melon, apricot and pear flavors present strongly around hints of white tea and jasmine, the texture elegantly layered and composed.  — Virginie Boone

2017 Stagecoach Road Pinot Noir

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
From a selection of Calera grapes grown on the extreme coast, this wine offers spice, wax and edgy acidity. Pomegranate, tangerine, cherry and mint flavors follow along a structured, complex and lengthy palate of balanced tannin and oak, finishing in lasting earthiness. — Virginie Boone

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.
