90 Points – 2014 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Wine & Spirits – January 2016

“Deep garnet hue. Aromas of wild strawberries, cranberries, savory dried herbs violet and forest floor lift elegantly from the glass. On the palate, flavors of Bing cherry, raspberry, and pomegranate are framed by fine-grained tannins, coastal minerality and bright natural acidity.”

94 Points – 2012 Sea View Ridge Pinot Noir, Wine Enthusiast – June 2015

“Deep ruby color with a brick rim. Aromas are floral and fruit dominant consisting of raspberry and bing cherry with subtle
hints of cedar, allspice and anise. The whole cluster element provides spiciness on the palate with smooth texture and hints of minerality that lead to an acid-driven lingering finish.”

95 Points – 2011 Moon Select Pinot Noir, Wine Enthusiast – February, 2014

“This wine blends multiple clones of Pinot Noir from two of the winery’s vineyards, Camp Meeting Ridge and Sea View Ridge. Both sites are high elevation, located only a few miles from the Pacific Ocean and extremely low in yields. Flowers negotiated a difficult vintage deftly with this low-alcohol wine of unusual delicacy and charm. It’s complex and layered with cherry, raspberry, cola, wild thyme, balsam and sandalwood flavors. It’s texture is like pure silk in the mouth. Drink now–2017.”

94 Points – 2011 Camp Meeting Ridge Pinot Noir Block 16, Wine Enthusiast – February, 2014

“If you can only cellar one Sonoma Pinot Noir from the 2011 vintage, make it this one. It’s a big, tight wine with strong tannins, but somehow never loses sight of Pinot’s essential delicacy. Despite the dryness, the wine has a luscious core of raspberries, red currants, cola and rhubarbs, along with subtle oak influences. Do not touch this wine before 2017, although it should still be going strong 15 years from now.”

92 Points – 2011 Camp Meeting Ridge Pinot Noir Block 11, Wine Enthusiast – February, 2014

“This is a fine, ageable Pinot Noir that’s dry and crisp with acidity. It exhibits a mushroomy earthiness that frames strawberry, cranberry and cola flavors. The window of drinkability begins in 2015.”

94 Points – 2011 Camp Meeting Ridge Pinot Noir, Wine Enthusiast – February, 2014

“Here’s one for the cellar. The deliciousness factor is high, but right now, it’s all about intense, primary flavors of red plums, rasberries and mulberries framed within bold oak and tannins (in part due to partial whole-cluster fermentation). Still quite immature, it needs at least six more years to meld, but eventually, it’s sure to be fantastic.”

Year’s Best Pinot Noir

“Light in color and rich in flavor depth, this is a tight young pinot noir from a ridge overlooking the Pacific, less than two miles away and more than 1,800 feet below. It hints at cherries, sandstone, kelp and smoke, presented with delicacy and the persistence that suggests cellaring for several years.”
