91 Points in Wine Enthuasiast

Our 2017 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir was awarded 91 points by Wine Enthusiast!

“All of Adam Campbell’s 2017 Pinots are fine-tuned and elegant. Not as ripe as the 2015s, nor as sturdy as the 2016s, they perfectly express the character of this vintage. This vineyard selection offers tight raspberry limned with citrus. Flavors are sharp, and the tannins polished. Another year or two in the bottle should further improve this wine.” – Paul Gregutt
