The 2021 Pinot Noir Estate Dopp Creek opens with a dark, dusty bouquet blending cedar shavings and brown spice with blood orange and sour cherries. Softly textured and round, it opens with a pretty inner sweetness complementing rose-tinged red fruits. It finishes fresh with a raspberry and licorice tinge as a bump of residual acidity adds a lasting, lively character. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2024)

This is a terrific Pinot noir and value priced as well. It has a beautiful silky texture, Form acidity, soft tannins and loads of red cherry, raspberry, strawberry and cranberry red fruit with lovely violet, crushed rose petal, forest floor, and a notable amount of Clive, vanilla and cinnamon. It isn’t at all over-oaked, just a beautiful balance of fruit and spice. Beautiful now, it should also sage gracefully for another five or six years, but it will be hard to wait!

Very nice Pinot. Silky with nice raspberries, strawberries, and some spice at the finish. Well balanced acidity with a nice long finish.

Fruity and great with swordfish. Lighter on the palate and goes well with everything from greens to dessert
