92 PTS - GOLD MEDAL - EXCEPTIONAL - World Wine Championships Awards
"Ruby black color. Bold, exotic aromas and flavors of chocolate mint, baked berries, pepper and herbs, and vanilla candle with a supple, tangy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, charming finish with accents of exotic spices, dried sour cherry, and
spiced prunes and dates with light oak. A very distinctive and spicy pinot that will be great with Asian beef dishes."

88 PTS - SILVER MEDAL - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - World Wine Championships Awards
"Violet garnet clear bright color. Attractive aromas and flavors of ripe black cherries, butter cream, subtle spiced berries, and dried twigs with a lightly tannic, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long finish with woody tannins and light oak. A nicely balanced red that will elevate a broad range of food."

"Light ruby red with a brickish rim. Aromas of wild raspberry, morello cherry,
crushed boysenberry, vanilla bean, portobello and licorice. Cherry, portobello and
vanilla flavors are well balanced as they interplay with one another. Full and round finish." (Tasted on November 14, 2013)

2004 The Noble One
94 POINTS - Wine Enthusiast
"The near-perfect marriage of acidity and fruit stars in this dramatically structured wine. The flavors, of red cherries and ripe red plums, are pure as can be, and that crispness boosts and brightens them to starburst quality. Lots of oak adds a delicious finish of toast, sweet vanilla and spice. Absolutely gorgeous Pinot Noir." S.H. (11/1/2007)
