Red raspberry, black cherry, and tangerine pith flavors merge like tributaries forming a larger, more iconic river. Aromas are reminiscent of young Douglas fir needles that were harvested early and damp. The mouthfeel is seamless, persistent, and transparent. Tasting this wine quickly becomes a wonderful memory as it almost evaporates in the mouth.
91/100 - The 2021 Pinot Noir Plural is bright, sculpted and full of energy. Crushed red berry fruit, spice, tobacco and cedar lend notable aromatic brilliance to this nuanced, beautifully translucent Pinot. It's a gorgeous appellation-level Pinot that showcases the style of the year so well. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 
92/10 - Oozes class through its inviting aromas of red forest fruits and bramble ripeness, with hints of floral notes and sweet spices. Mature with nuances of celery salt on the palate. Dense, well-structured and fresh with very fine tannins. - Anne Krebiehl MW, Justin Knock MW, Dirceu Vianna Junior MW, Decanter
