Wine Advocate 95 - The 2015 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard Suerte has a pale ruby-purple color and perfumed aromas of rose hip tea, potpourri and cinnamon stick over a core of Bing cherries and pomegranate, plus a waft of tilled loam. The medium-bodied palate has an ethereal texture and nature, with silt-like tannins framing the ever-changing glimpses of red berry and spicy flavors, finishing with great length and depth. Truly beautiful.
Vinous 93 - The 2015 Pinot Noir Suerte Solomon Hills Vineyard is one of the riper, racier wines in this range. Succulent dark cherry, new French oak, kirsch, lavender and spice are all pushed forward. Much of the density has been achieved with some loss of detail and site-specific nuance, which is a shame given the pedigree of this site. The 2015 will appeal most to readers who enjoy plush, overt Pinots.
On the nose, there is strawberry laced with iron, lingonberry and lavender, and the palate finds fresh-toned red fruit in harmony with earthier, more mineral tones. The mouthfeel is pure satin with an integrated acid through-line. Irresistible.
