91pts(AG) The 2011 Pinot Noir Estate impresses for its energy, cut and minerality. In 2011, the Estate is a bit racier and more energetic than the 2010, but just as beautiful, if not a bit more complex at the end of the day. Freshly cut flowers, savory herbs, mint and licorice all seems to jump form the glass in an energetic Pinot endowed with stunning balance, class and pedigree. At $35 a bottle represents one of the every finest values in artisan California Pinot. Sweet floral notes add finesse on the layered, creamy finish. Antonio Galloni

90pts (RP) The 2011 Chardonnay Estate is beautifully focused in this vintage. Totally different in style than the 2010, the 2011 is laced with bright citrusy fruit, flowers and sweet spices. The layered, fo, cused style of the year comes through nicely. The purity of the fruit, especially on the finish, is impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016. Robert Parker

90pts(ST) Bright gold. Pungent aromas of poached pear, honey, chamomile and smoky lees. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering lemon curd, pear and anise flavors and a hint of beeswax. Closes on a spicy note, with firm grip and a suggestion of dried citrus fruits. I like this chardonnay's blend of richness and nerve. Stephen Tanzer
