92 Points – Wine Enthusiast

Our 2018 Clay Court Pinot Noir has been honored with a 92 point score in Wine Enthusiast Magazine

“The Clay Court features a mix of Pommard and Dijon clones, with the anticipated flavors of ripe cherries. Barrel aging has pumped up aromas of toasted walnuts and a whiff of burnt popcorn. The lovely fruit, with a nice tangy edge, is the star here, and sails smoothly through a well-balanced finish.” – Paul Gregutt

The review will post in the August 2020 issue of Wine Enthusiast Magazine and at winemag.com. According to Senior Tasting Director Joe Czerwinski, Wine Enthusiast blind tastes wines for review and rates their wines according to a 100 point scale:
