Ratings & Reviews


91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This is a big, ripe, oaky Pinot Noir. Considering how cold the vintage was, it was quite an achievement to produce such powerful raspberry, cherry and plum fruit flavors. The wine is dry, elegantly tailored and vibrant in acidity, and should peak by 2017." - S.H. (11/1/2013)

89 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Bright ruby-red. Musky red berries, rhubarb and dried flowers on the pungent nose. Sappy and precise on the palate, offering spicy redcurrant and cherry flavors that become fleshier and sweeter as the wine opens up. Fine-grained tannins give shape and grip to a long, focused finish that features notes of bitter cherry and vanilla bean." - Stephen Tanzer (May 2014)

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2011 Pinot Noir Windsor Oaks displays a creamy (especially for a 2011) texture along with rich, dark cherry and black currant notes intermixed with hints of earth and oak. Medium-bodied with excellent concentration and lots of complexity, it should drink well for 3-4 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec 2013)

Wine Spectator Magazine (2010 Vintage):
"Serves up generous ripe plum, wild berry and raspberry fruit that's rich and supple, focused and persistent. Drink now through 2020. 310 cases made." – JL (Web Only - 2012)
