Jeb Dunnuck – 94 points

Starting with the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate Sta. Rita Hills, which comes from vines around the estate and saw 40% stems, it reveals a medium ruby hue as well as a great bouquet of ripe cherry and raspberry fruits intermixed with beautiful violet and floral notes. Showing the purity and elegance of the vintage, it’s medium-bodied and has a silky texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. As usual, it’s a screaming value.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 92 points
Pale to medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate has very pretty aromas of charcuterie, rose petal, strawberry, tea leaves and earth. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and super juicy with earth and spice-tinged fruits and a long, perfumed finish.
