2016 Pinot Noir Watershed: “This offers a lot of complexity for the money, with pink-peppercorn scents and pure, vinous flavors of cherry backed with tobacco and pepper.” 92 points, Wine & Spirits. Purchase now.

2016 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills: Pretty, with scents of beeswax and vanillin, this has a seductive lightness, the dark cherry flavor guided by a focused, nimble texture. It has the lean assertiveness to handle a smoked pork chop.” 92 points. Wine & Spirits. Join Cellar Door Club.

2016 Pinot Noir Block 9-Pommard: This has a classic Dundee Hills profile beneath its oak, with red cherry flavors, brick-dust minerality, and tobacco-leaf tannins. For duck” 91 points. Wine & Spirits. Released in September 2019.

2016 Pinot Noir Reserve: “A flashy pinot, this swings for the fence with its intensity and concentration. It starts out savory, with scents of cinnamon and redwood fronds, then the flavors go richers toward red-velvet cake, sumptuous cherry and dark plum. It all holds together, and needs something substantial to pair with it, like a pork chop. 91 points. Wine & Spirits. Join Cellar Door Club.
