Our 2013 Mount Richmond received 90 points from Wine Spectator Magazine:
“Fresh and inviting, showing more density than many 2013s, with juicy blackberry and spice flavors set against fine-grained tannins. Offers presence and length. Best from 2017 through 2020” – Harvey Steinem
Wine & Spirits Magazine gave our 2013 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley a great review of 91 Points:
“Light, fresh and lifted, this shows off the best aspects of the vintage. It’s a woodsy red with a dried-cherry scent, accented with a bit of leather. Its flavors are frisky and fresh, acids and tannins working together to forge plenty of movement and charm.” – Patrick J. Comiskey
Our 2013 Mount Richmond received an excellent 92 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“The winery’s largest vineyard, Mount Richmond encompasses 105 acres, and yet just 752 cases of the vineyard-designated version were produced in this vintage. The demanding selection process worked wonders. This is a smoky and seductive wine with aromas of incense and Asian spice. Bright, ripe cherry fruit is highlighted with a dash of dark chocolate. Subtle and elegant, this is an all-star effort from a challenging vintage.” – Paul Gregutt
Our 2014 Pinot Blanc received an excellent 91 points and was designated an “Editor’s Choice” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“Harmonious and beautifully balanced, this brings intensity , depth and detail to its layered and ripe tree-fruit flavors. Added notes of lemon zest and a dollop of honey keep the interest level climbing. Editors’ Choice.” – Paul Gregutt

Our 2014 Pinot Gris received an excellent 92 points and was designated an “Editor’s Choice” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
“Beautifully styled, this wine brings a solid blend of citrus, cucumber, tangerine and melon flavors. The length and balance are there for further aging, but the stunningly good flavors encourage near-term drinking. Editor’s Choice.” -Paul Gregutt

Our 2013 Clay Court Pinot Noir received a whopping 94 points and was designated a “Cellar Selection” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“Though the 2013 vintage has generally been deemed a challenging one, this astonishing bottling proves that great wine can be made somewhere in almost any year. This warm and fruity, perfectly structured single-vineyard effort opens with a smooth and supple palate offering strawberry and cherry fruit, defining acidity and superb length. Give it a few hours to breathe and it shows depth, finesse and the ability to age and improve through 2025 and beyond. Cellar Selection.” – Paul Gregutt

Wine Spectator Magazine gave our 2013 Clay Court Pinot Noir 91 Points:
“Lithe and expressive, focusing blackberry and cherry flavors into a narrow beam that shines through a thin veil of fine tannins and persists into the long finish. Drink now through 2022.” -Harvey Steiman
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate gave our 2012 Clay Court Pinot Noir 91 Points in their March 2015 edition:
“The nose is conservative, slightly reticent at first, then opens with a mixture of red and black fruit, baked cherries, boysenberry and just a faint touch of menthol. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and respectable depth. There is something pleasantly unassuming about this Pinot Noir as in it is not trying to impress, there is no ostentation. It needs another 12 months to fully assimilate the new oak, but then you will have a fine Pinot Noir that should offer a decade of pleasure.” -Neal Martin
Our 2012 Reserve Pinot Noir “…is only made in exceptional years, and 2012 was certainly among the best in memory. Berry, cherry and toast components are here in full meature, with a sumptuos mocha-infused finish…” — P.G.
