2018 Ata Rangi "McCrone Vineyard" Pinot Noir Martinborough
Top Pick!
96 points Sam Kim: "Sophisticated and gorgeously complex, the wine shows dark cherry, dried herb, warm mushroom, almond and game nuances on the nose, leading to a refined palate offering excellent focus and flow. It's finely textured with grainy tannins, offering superb structure and length. At its best: now to 2035." (10/2021) 95 points Bob Campbell: "Vibrant, high-energy pinot noir with floral, violet, cherry, dried herb, brambles and spicy-oak flavours. An elegant rather than blockbuster wine with the sort of structure and fruit intensity that sugge...

94 points Wine Spectator: "This sports some serious perfume, with red and black tea, savory and sassafras hints leading off, quickly followed by a racy set of damson plum, raspberry and red currant coulis flavors that extend through the lengthy, mineral-accented finish. There are savory sparkles throughout in the background, and the energy here is coiled and vibrant. (JM)" (01/2022) K&L Notes: The El Molino wines are produced from a very unique planting of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Rutherford, the heart of Cabernet country. But actually it's nothing...

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Co-proprietor Alex Gambal puts his Burgundian knowledge to work on this cool-climate vineyard, delivering aromas of churned earth, chaparral scrub, red flower and cherry on the layered nose. A grippy structure grabs hold of the palate, allowing sage brush, snappy red fruit and a hint of baking spice to ride long into the finish. (MK)" (03/2022) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant and alluring, with muscular minerality to the mix of dried rose petal, dark currant and allspice flavors. The rich, structured finish delivers conc...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Block Eight Fir Crest has gregarious, inviting aromas of blackberries and black cherries, cured meats, crushed bay leaves, dried flowers and woodsmoke. The medium-bodied palate is generously fruited, with a grainy, seamlessly fresh frame and long, earth-laced finish. I love how much flavor is packed into this modest frame! It has the ability to age well in the cellar, so give it a few years in bottle. 95+ (EB)" 92 points Vinous: "Deep, brilliant red. Cherry, black raspberr...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smashed raspberry aromas are blasted with pleasantly funky touches of red miso, dried mushroom, toasted sage and other brittle herbs on the nose of this bottling. It presents creamy on the palate at first before light tannins set up the fresh flavors of raspberry and pomegranate, decorated in rose hips and light charcuterie touches. (MK)"

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This lovely, fragrant wine is abundantly fruity and subtly spicy, blending ripe strawberry and red-cherry flavors with absolutely tempting cinnamon, clove and cedar spices. It has a generous, mouthfilling texture lifted by a touch of tannin and fresh acidity. (JG)" (10/2020) K&L Notes: Composed of 100% Pinot Noir from a blend of clones which include Pommard, Mt. Eden, Martini, and Dijon. Aged for 16 months in 38% new 60-gallon French oak barrels.

93 points Wine Spectator: "Precise and minerally, with hints of ripeness to the dark cherry and dried raspberry flavors, supported by rich acidity. Nuances of white pepper midpalate lead to a long finish that is richly spiced. Drink now through 2026."

95 points Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard is a gorgeous wine that captures all the energy and savory intensity typical of this coastal site. Crushed flowers, savory herbs, licorice, dried cherry, mint and sage infuse the 2018 with lovely aromatic complexity to match its medium-weight personality. A touch (9%) of stems adds character without overpowering the wine. The Estate is one of the finer wines I have tasted from Red Car. In a word: terrific. (AG)" (01/2020) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A light, delicate and ultimately fresh red wine f...

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is an inaugural release from the producer's estate, a tight, reductive expression that will take time to unfurl. Earthy in black tea, forest and a midpalate intensity, it reveals layers of bright, lively red fruit, a mix of raspberry, strawberry and cherry that gives it a lasting freshness. Enjoy best from 2025 - 2035. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2018 Pinot Noir Three Hills comes skipping out of the glass with floral notes of roses and lilacs over a c...

97 points James Suckling: "A fantastic pinot with an electric finish of chalk and salt with ripe-strawberry and strawberry-pie flavors. Full-bodied and tight. Fresh and minerally. Hints of asphalt and earth come through. Drink now." 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Palmtag Block comes from own-rooted, Mt. Eden clone vines planted in 1988, later grafted over from Merlot to Pinot Noir. Pale ruby-purple, it has savory notions of charcuterie, earth, tar and citrus peel with ripe red and black berries. The medium-bodied palate is...

97 points James Suckling: "Blackberry, dried strawberry and black cherry. Some stem, too. Full-bodied, bright and polished. Crushed-stone and granite undertones. Rocky and salty. Calera clone. Drinkable now, but needs two or three years to open." 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Lansdale Block offers broody black and blue berries, turned earth, tar and violet top notes. The palate is medium-bodied, firmly structured and broody, packed with dark fruits and finishing long and fresh. This should age well in ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Maresh Vineyard is an incredible wine. It opens slowly to an arresting perfume of dusty earth, dried rose petals, tea leaves, licorice and amaro with a wealth of bright red berry fruit at the core. The palate is elegant, supple and juicy, with an expansive fan of layered, spicy flavors and a very long finish. It's hard to resist now, but it will have more to offer with time in bottle. 95+ (EB)" (12/2020)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Crushed stone, lit gunpowder, peppery herbs, sassafras, violets, and assorted red and black fruits all emerge from the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate, a brilliant release from this estate that's medium-bodied, has bright yet integrated acidity, beautiful balance, and a great, great finish. It's young and unevolved (yet it's already complex) and will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age, but this is a gorgeous California Pinot Noir on every level. It's going to drink well for over two decades. 95+" (12/2021) 95 points Vinous: "The 2018 P...

95 points Decanter: "L'Ensemble is the selection of the best barrels from across the favoured vineyards where Nicolas-Jay sources grapes, including the estate Bishop Creek. These are not pre-selected, but chosen anew each year. The 2018 selection shows off the ripe, black fruit of the vintage with an appealing savoury, meaty character and a dense, tannic structure on the palate. Yet the sensitive winemaking has preserved freshness and elegance despite the warm, dry growing season to leave a lasting impression. This wine will age magnificently well." 94 ...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Rice Spivak Vineyard is pure and expressive this vintage, with layered scents of red cherries, orange peel, saline and earth. The palate is soft, fresh and super spicy, its charming, juicy red berry fruits calling you in again and again for another sip. (EB)" (08/2021) 94 points Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard is a bright, punchy wine. Today, it is brilliant, but also tightly wound. Bright red berry fruit, mint, spice, cedar and earthy notes are all laced together in a comp...

95 points James Suckling: "Super complex and rich with a ripe array of red to dark-cherry and plum aromas, as well as toasted-spice oak influence. This has much to enjoy already. The palate has a very rich, fleshy and intense, layered appeal with a swirling, spicy thread of rich red cherries and long, fine, supple tannins." (01/2020) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The lush aromatics immediately grab your attention with a tantalizing mix of berries and barrel toast. Already in perfect balance, this young wine weaves its components into a textural mesh high...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "With a rich, fruity nose, this wine offers complex structure and flecks of mineral, weighty with impressive length and breadth on the palate. Cola, forest floor and allspice accent the full-bodied style. (VB)" (04/2022) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Big and rich-tasting, with hints of soy to the dried red fruit and berry flavors, which are backed by suave acidity and tannins. The caressing finish is loaded with cooking spice accents. (KM)" (02/2022)

97 points James Suckling: "This has such ripe red-cherry pinot fruit aromas, as well as forest wood and a swathe of deep-set spices. The palate carries such plush red and dark-cherry flavors in a long, fresh and energetic mode. Commanding Pinot with such impressive poise." (06/2021) 95 points Vinous: "Shimmering ruby-red. Ripe red and blue fruit, lavender and exotic spice scents take on smoky mineral, licorice and cola nuances with air. Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering juicy boysenberry, cherry pie, cola and allspice flavors supported by a c...
