Vinous

The 2017 Pinot Noir Emmaline-Ann Vineyard is another stellar wine in this range. Bold, rich and explosive, the 2017 possesses tremendous depth and nuance. Black cherry, plum, menthol, licorice and sage infuse the 2017 with tons of character. The 2017 is marked by a real sense of vertical energy and statuesque beauty. The 50% whole clusters are not especially evident. What a wine! (AG)

Decanter

Pure and vibrant on the nose, showing notes of lavender, rose water and conifer. The weightless texture typical of this site is here in spades, with notes of ripe red cherries and cranberries on the palate. A woodsy, dried-mushroom note on the finish makes this a slightly more savoury iteration of the always-beautiful Emmaline Ann Vineyard. (ML)

Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Noir Emmaline Ann Vineyard is elegant and perfumed, with bright cranberry and red cherry fruits accented by forest floor and amaro. It's light-bodied and grainy with broody, earth and spiced-laced fruits enlivened by bright freshness on the long, nuanced finish. (EB)

James Suckling

This has impressive detail and fragrant interest with roses, violets, blueberries and a dark-stone edge. The palate has a succulent and fresh core with very pure and fresh, blueberry flavor. Impressive focus here.

Wine Enthusiast

Textured and earthy, with a firmness of tannin, this youthful wine is high toned and full of energy. Layers of crunchy pomegranate, rhubarb and black tea mingle and meld across the palate, seasoned in cardamom and white pepper. (VB)
