Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 91 points

The 2016 Pinot Noir Wayfarer Vineyard is medium ruby-purple with lovely red cherries, redcurrants and pomegranate notes with touches of dried herbs and forest floor. The palate is medium to full-bodied with tons of bright fruit layers and a fine-grained texture, finishing long and juicy.

Jeb Dunnuck – 93 points

Showing the freshness and purity of the vintage, the 2013 Pinot Noir Wayfarer Vineyard is a young, juicy Pinot Noir that offers lots of black cherry, black raspberry, violets, charcoal, and flowers. Fresh, edgy and lightly textured on the palate, it doesn’t have the sheer concentration of some of the single parcel releases, yet has plenty of depth, nicely integrated acidity, and polished tannin. It will be even better in another year or three.

Wine Enthusiast – 94 points

This wine blends all 12 clones of Pinot Noir grown on the property, to tremendous effect. Sanguine, it traffics in pretty pomegranate and cranberry, with a quenching taste of kirsch-like cherry. Lightly spiced, it delivers an end note of milk chocolate on the lengthy finish, a stellar, drinkable wine from start to finish.
