Our 2016 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir received an excellent 93 point rating from Wine Enthusiast:
“Supple purple fruits show perfect ripeness while rounding off in a lovely and satisfying mid-palate. Barrel aging contributes a streak of espresso. Accents of black olive and clean earth are carefully moderated by smooth polished tannins.” –Paul Gregutt
