93 Points & Cellar Selection – Wine Enthusiast

Our 2019 Five Mountain Pinot Noir has been honored with a 93 point score & a Cellar Selection designation by Wine Enthusiast Magazine!

“Cranberry, blackberry and black cherry ring loud and clear, with appealing wet-stone minerality in the background. The fruit flavors are so front loaded and intense that it’s easy to miss the inherent angularity and overall finesse of the wine. It’s structured and fine-tuned for aging. Drink through 2035.”

– Paul Gregutt, Contributing Editor
