Description

94 Points Wine Advocate - Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Vanguard leaps from the glass with frisky Bing cherries, pomegranate and fresh cranberry notes plus hints of violets, cinnamon stick and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate gives a great intensity of crunchy, vibrant red berry flavors, framed by lovely ripe, grainy tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

95 Points Vinous - The 2015 Pinot Noir Vanguard is a stunningly beautiful, dramatic wine endowed with massive flavor intensity and sheer richness, featuring inky blue/purplish fruit, menthol, licorice and spice. There is not much subtlety here, and yet this wine is simply glorious. Fruit sources are Sanford & Benedict, Radian and Bentrock.

94 Points Wine Enthusiast - Deep, hearty and lavish aromas of nutmeg, boysenberry paste, purple flowers and forest floor show on the nose of this bottling by Matt Dees. It is a thick and masculine expression of Pinot Noir, yet is expertly balanced by bright acidity, polished but firm tannins and an earthy sensibility at its core.
