Pinot Noir

ADELAIDA Pinot Noir Estate 2013
91 Points. The Tasting Panel, Anthony Dias Blue - June 2015
"Bright and juicy with ripe cherry and racy acidity; tangy and savory with depth and balance; long and fresh."
 
ADELAIDA Pinot Noir HMR Vineyard 2010
90 points. Burghound - October 2014
"Quite fresh with good layering present on the expressive nose of plum, violet and soft spice scents. I like the density of the medium weight flavors and the old vines are very much in evidence as the mid-palate volume is impressive thanks to the abundant dry extract that also coats the palate on the beautifully long finish."

"Starting off the reds, the 2010 Pinot Noir is a beauty! From vines planted in 1964 and aged 18 months in mostly neutral oak, it offers up a pretty, elegant profile with notions of wild strawberries, cherry, dried flowers and spice flowing to a medium-bodied, supple palate. Already approachable and ready to go, it should continue to drink nicely for 3-4 years. Drink now-2017."  Jeb Dunnuck
 
ADELAIDA Pinot Noir HMR Vineyard 2008
91 points. Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - February 2011

"...Very long on optimally ripened, black-cherry fruit and decked out with lots of sweet oak, this wine is unwavering in its keen varietal focus and, after a bit of a bit of bluster to start, surprises by being both big and well-balanced."
 
ADELAIDA Pinot Noir HMR Estate Vineyard Reserve 2007
91 points. International Wine Cellar, Stephen Tanzer - November 2010

"Bright red. High-pitched aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry and Asian spices are complemented by a subtle smoky quality. Zesty and precise, with tangy red berry flavors that show very good focus and pick up a touch of allspice in the mid-palate. A suave, elegant wine that belies both the vintage and the region, where too many pinots are dull and roasted."
 
ADELAIDA Pinot Noir HMR Vineyard 2006
94 points. Wine Enthusiast, TOP 100 WINES OF THE YEAR! - May 2009

"This bottling is always quite good, but it excels in 2006. Shows lusher, more exotic notes than ever before, just oozing in tiers of black and red cherry compote, currants, mocha, cinnamon, anise and pepper flavors. Finishes thoroughly dry, a beautifully crafted Pinot that will change your mind about Paso Robles."
 
ADELAIDA Pinot Noir HMR Vineyard 2002
91 Points. Two Puffs and a "Good Value". Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - February 2005

"Nicely fruited and very well-focused from its first sniff through to its lengthy finish, this impeccably balanced wine gets its admirable ratings without resorting to blatant ripeness or excessive oak. Its touches of vanillin spice serve as a comfortable counterpoint to its ongoing themes of juicy red cherries, and its supple, slightly velvety feel is the stuff of very good Pinot Noir. If certainly capable of getting better over the next few years, it is delicious right now and invites near-term enjoyment."
