92 Points - Vinous
"The 2016 Pinot Noir Toulouse Vineyard shows a more restrained side of Anderson Valley in its bright, red-toned fruit and persistent yet integrated tannins. Floral, chalky and citrus notes give the wine aromatic lift and intrigue. Gracious and inviting, the 2016 is pure sensuality. This is a terrific example of deep end Anderson Valley Pinot done in a style that emphasizes floral and mineral notes more than overt fruit." -AG, Apr/2018

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Full bodied and very plush in texture, this supersmooth wine starts with aromas of cooked cherries and plums, moves to richer, sweet-seeming strawberries and red cherries on the palate while it coats the tongue and sides of the mouth with an appealing, creamy texture." -JG, 3/1/19

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Toulouse Vineyard reveals red roses, raspberry leaves and cranberries scents with nuances of underbrush and aniseed. Medium-bodied, it gives a lovely core of red berries and herbal layers, framed by soft tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on an earthy note. 510 cases were made." -LPB, 6/29/18
