Deceptively light in color, yet aromatically rich, this sends up a lush mix of berries, spices, chocolate and pastry notes. It's youthful and vibrant, with clean, bright, tangy fruit that has the balance and power for excellent development in the bottle. Drink now through 2025.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Enthusiast
Light and zingy, with a refreshing tang to the raspberry, chocolate and floral flavors as they zip through a long, lively finish. Best from 2018 through 2024. 1,377 cases made.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Spectator
The 2014 Pinot Noir Bonnie Jean Vineyard, from vines on a former cherry orchard planted in 2006 and 2012, has a pleasant, chocolate-tinged bouquet with fine definition, the fruit here a little darker than some of Ken Wright's other 2014 vineyard offerings. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red cherry and soy tinged fruit, fine tannins, nicely composed with commendable persistence on the tart finish. It will drink well for 12-15 years.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
