Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 95 points
The 2013 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch Vineyard comes from a 20-acre site in the Russian River Valley, acquired by this team two years ago. Harvest between September 20th and October 7th, completely destemmed and aged 16 months in 55% new French oak, it has awesome richness and freshness in its cassis, black raspberry, crushed rock and subtle vanilla bean/sweet oak bouquet. This gives way to a rich, layered, elegant red that has the balance and class to evolve nicely for a decade.

This is firm and well-centered on ripe plum, black cherry and raspberry flavors, this is clean, trim and persistent on the finish. Good now, but should be better in a year. Drink now through 2022.
