About

94

"Moving to the reds, the 2016 Pinot Noir Rita's Crown is another smoky, rich, powerful wine from Kimberly Hatcher. Full-bodied notes of blackcurrants, leafy herbs, shrimp broth, and spice all flow to a layered, incredibly textured Pinot Noir that stays balanced and seamless. It’s a rock star Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 7-8 years."

93 Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Rita's Crown Vineyard (aged 18 months in 100% new French oak) has a gorgeous perfume of chocolate-covered cherries, black raspberries and redcurrants with hints of violets and rose hip tea plus a waft of wild thyme. The palate is medium to full-bodied with lovely freshness, very fine-grained tannins and a very long finish. 200 cases produced."
