Wine Enthusiast Review: 92 points
"Light and smoothly textured, this beautifully crafted wine is earthy in wild strawberry preserves, mushroom and forest floor. With a tannic grip that subsides in the glass, it's built to age but entirely enjoyable now, showing power and concentration on the finish."
Wine Advocate Review: 91 points
"From a vineyard used successfully by Luc Morlet for his wines, comes the 2013 Pinot Noir Nobles Vineyard out of Fort Ross-Seaview. The wine is made from the Martini clone of Pinot Noir, with more recent Dijon clone selections such as 777 and 828. This wine comes across like a Musigny from Burgundy. Notes of crushed rock, red currants, black cherries, plum and forest floor are all present in this dense, dark ruby-colored wine that is rich, concentrated, round and capable of evolving for a decade or more."
