Reviewer Allen Meadows wrote: "Airy and ultra-elegant aromas waft from the glass to gradually reveal notes of essence of red cherry, apple and an interesting hint of exotic tea. The wonderfully textured medium-bodied flavors are impressively sleek while retaining fine detail on the mildly austere, dusty and focused finale. This is a lovely and understated effort that should go beautifully with the right foods. 91/2024+"
Our 2017 Charles Vineyard Pinot Noir received a 90-point score in the current issue of Burghound.com!
Reviewer Allen Meadows wrote: "A mentholated top note can be found on the equally cool and airy red berry fruit aromas where lovely floral nuances add breadth. Here too there is both good verve and delineation to the slightly finer medium-bodied flavors that deliver better persistence. While there is a touch of youthful austerity as well, the balance is more harmonious. 90/2024+"
We're thrilled to receive 93 points in Wine Spectator for our flagship Pinot: the 2017 Charles Vineyard Pinot Noir.
The review reads: "Big and rich, featuring well-knit flavors of concentrated dark currant, cherry compote and dried blackberry. Creamy midpalate, with hints of chocolate mousse on the plus finish. ..." Rich flavors, at just 13.6% alcohol - one of our choices for cellaring.
Our third wine entered, and our third medal received! Our 2017 Charles Vineyard Pinot Noir was awarded a silver medal at the 2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition!
