James Suckling: 97 Points

Crushed stone raspberry and strawberry character. Medium-bodied with density and a toned structured. White pepper notes come through. Racy and bright. Drink or hold.


Wine Enthusiast: 95 Points

This very young wine possesses an immensely layered profile so expect lots of exciting evolution in the years to come. Dense aromas of bay leaf wild mint damp peppercorns and yerba santa relay the stem inclusion on the nose. Tense angular tannins frame the palate where muddled elderberry and plum flavors play against the intense herbaceousness. Drink 2025?2040. ? Matt Kettmann

Wine Spectator: 95 Points

Alluring with singed black tea and sandalwood nuances leading off followed by a core of red and black cherry fruit flavors that bristle with coiled-up energy while tobacco warm earth and savory notes infuse the finish. Reveals a nice buried iron edge too. This needs some cellaring to fully unwind. Best from 2025 through 2035. 662 cases made.

Wine Advocate: 93 Points

The 2021 Pinot Noir Memorious comes from the smallest parcel at Domaine de la Côte (about three acres) where vines grow on clay soils and are subjected to lots of wind. It has a pale ruby-purple color and scents of wild raspberry and blackberry with nuances of tangerine dried herbs and lavender. The palate is light-bodied and delicately styled with chalky tannins and energetic acidity finishing long and perfumed. Published: Dec 08 2022
