Wine Spectator, 92 Points - A big, expressive, extracted style, with gutsy tannins and a strong, pleasing personality centered on vivid wild berry, raspberry, smoky oak and road tar notes. Most rewarding on the finish, where the flavors fold together. Drink now through 2024. 400 cases made.
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate, 91 Points - Woodbridge’s Midas touch with Cabernet Sauvignon also extends to his Pinot Noirs. He makes three of them – two from the Sonoma Coast and one from the Southern Napa Valley site called Stanley Ranch that was often used by Berringer. The 2013s are all brilliantly packaged with a gorgeous picture of a cherry pie on the label. The 2013 Cherry Pie Pinot Noir Stanly Ranch is a hefty Pinot at 15+% natural alcohol, but exhibits delicious kirsch liqueur notes, roasted herbs, spice box and medium to full-bodied fleshy and succulent fruit and texture. It is a sexy, endearing style to drink over the next 5-7 years.
