• 2014 Goldrock Ridge Pinot Noir

    Light and delicate, this wine also offers a lushness to the texture, finding a balance between the two spectrums. Cranberry and strawberry dot a landscape of earthy tobacco and cola-laced oak, finishing with a bold taste of dark chocolate. —Virginie Boone, June 1, 2017

    Pale to medium ruby colored, the 2014 Goldrock Ridge Pinot Noir is scented of black cherries, black raspberries and garrigue with touches of lavender and underbrush. Medium bodied and delicately played on the palate, it has a fine backbone of silky tannins and lively acidity, finishing long. —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, March 1, 2017

    Bramble berry and lemon rind aromas follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. More fruit forward in style but shows an intensity and beauty. Drink now or hold. —James Suckling, May 23, 2017

    Bright berry nose; juicy and crisp with racy acidity and tangy red cherry fruit; smooth, lively and lush; elegant and deep; charming and long. —Anthony Diaz Blue, February 2017

    What jumps out in this vintage from Goldrock Ridge is the freshness of the fruit on the palate. This wine is loaded with notes of blue fruits and spice without going down the path toward jammy, baked aromas. The acidity is bright and refreshing, the tannins firm but beautifully integrated, and the finish is long and impressive. Drink now or hold for up to five years. —Robert Whitley, March 21, 2017

    A lovely pinot that’s layered with notes of blackberry, blueberry, herbs and tobacco. Bright acid. Lingering finish. Well crafted. —Peg Melnick, January, 2017
