Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2011 Pinot Noir Emery comes from a variety of clones and spends 14 months on French oak barrels. The nose here is very attractive with lifted floral red berry fruit, well defined and perfumed, with a Burgundian purity and allure. The palate is medium-bodied, with supple red berry fruit, smooth in the mouth with no rough edges and fine salinity toward the finish. Understated in style perhaps, yet thoughtfully crafted, this is one of the estate's best 2011s. "

Wine Spectator:

" Light and sleek, with a tart edge to the red berry, currant and hibiscus flavors, coming together harmoniously against fine tannins on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2018. 800 cases made. "

Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media:

"(40% new oak): Brilliant ruby-red. Dark berries, cherry pit, cola and licorice on the pungent nose. Juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted and sharpened by tangy acidity, picking up a smoky nuance with air. Chewy tannins firm the lingering finish. This pinot's youthful structure bodes well for at least short-term cellaring."
