96/100 - The 2020 Pinot Noir Estate is concentrated and structured and will benefit from more bottle time. Medium ruby, it has intense aromas of dried cranberry, burnt orange peel, cinnamon stick, aniseed, tar and chaparral. The medium-bodied palate is chalky and fresh with crunchy red fruits and loads of botanical and earthy accents, and it finishes with a touch of sweet spice across the finish. - Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate
Donnachadh's Estate Pinot Noir masterfully blends vibrant New World fruit intensity with the structured elegance of Old World style. It showcases aromas of black cherries, raspberries, sage, black tea, and a hint of baking spice. The palate is a rich tapestry of juicy dark fruits, framed by robust tannins and lively acidity, promising excellent ageing potential. 
Enjoy it now with a bit of decanting or watch it evolve beautifully over the years. It's aged 15 months in French oak barrels, with 20% new oak, utilizing Calera, Pommard, 115, and 667 clones.

The 2020 vintage in Santa Rita Hills experienced a typical cool spring and summer, punctuated by a warm spell that perfectly ripened the grapes. Fortuitous timing allowed for harvesting after the heatwave, ensuring the grapes arrived at the winery cool. This pattern of late-season warmth recurs biennially, noted in ’17, ’20, and ’22, but not in ’16, ’18, ’19, or ’21.
