Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Rated 94:
Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sleeping Hollow Vineyard leaps from the glass with notes of cranberry sauce, redcurrant jelly and black raspberries with hints of black tea, forest floor and bouquet garni with a beautiful undercurrent of rose oil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with ripe red berry layers and loads of earthy/savory accents, supported by finely knit, grainy tannins, finishing with great length and focus.
Wine Spectator - Rated 90:
Ripe, fruity style, with concentrated dark plum and berry flavors loaded with cooking spice accents. Fleshy finish is backed by firm tannins and acidity.
