93 Points Wine Enthusiast - There's a damp-forest-floor quality of pine needles, turned earth, moss and exotic wood smoke to the nose of this bottling, which gives depth to the black-raspberry and caramel aromas. A zippy acidity carries from the front to back of the sip, where more forest-like flavors of juniper and bay leaf meet with hickory and boysenberry. The firm structure ensures ageability.
93 Points Wine Advocate - Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Old Guard has pronounced black cherries, black raspberries and anise on the nose, with a stems-inspired, herbal undercurrent, lending plenty of spice box and savory notions. Medium-bodied and led by a structure of chewy tannins and lively acidity, it has a great core of earthy/savory layers and finishes on a peppery note.
