Score: 93 | April 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

Garden herb and forest floor aromas make a case for this wine to be considered the producer's “Finest Selection” (the “FS” in “OFS”). On the palate, wild strawberry, black cherry and berry are the story, while powerful spice adds intrigue to the velvety texture, roundness and full-bodied concentration.

Score: 90 | March 31, 2017 | Wine Spectator

Slowly builds intensity and complexity, offering a taut range of spicy wild berry, raspberry, cherry, spice and crushed rock notes. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors take on a delicate, supple charm.

Exhibits complex spicy cherry and raspberry flavors, with loamy earth details and a crushed rock minerality adding texture and flavor. Ends with a long, persistent finish.

The 2014 Chardonnay No. 81 is scented of ripe apples and peaches with hints of cedar, baking bread, marzipan and ginger. Medium to full-bodied and silken textured, it offers a great concentration of clean, ripe stone fruit flavors with some savory characters coming thorough on the long finish.

Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir No. 7 has an earthy nose of moss-covered bark, damp loam and underbrush over a delicate core of cranberries and raspberry leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate offers just enough red-fruit freshness to counter the earthy flavors, with a seamless backbone of fine-grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing with excellent length.

Score: 95+ | March 1, 2017 | Wine Advocate

Pale ruby colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Pinot Noir No. 22 offers a gorgeous perfume of red roses and violets over a core of wild strawberries, raspberries and Provence herbs with a touch of underbrush. The medium-bodied palate delivers a wonderful intensity of perfumed red berry flavors framed by very fine tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with great depth and persistence.
