2013 Paul Lato "Atticus - John Sebastiano Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1243416 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Pinot Noir Atticus John Sebastiano Vineyard is stunning. Loaded with fruit and a big, voluptuous, textured effort, it has tons of black raspberry, black cherry, violets, leather and baking spices aromas and flavors. These come together beautifully on the palate and it has sensational depth and richness through the mid-palate while always staying lively, elegant and seamless. It's fruit loaded and exuberant for sure, but also as classy and silky as they come. It's already hard to resist, but I suspect it will evolve easily for a decade. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A juicy, boisterous wine, the 2013 Pinot Noir Atticus John Sebastiano Vineyard offers notable intensity, yet also comes across as rough around the edges and not fully formed. There is no shortage of depth in the bold red-toned berries, kirsch, pomegranate, sweet spice and floral notes, but the 70% new oak has not yet been fully absorbed. It will be interesting to see if further time in bottle helps the 2013 find a bit more balance and harmony than is present at this stage. With time in the glass, the John Sebastiano turns slightly more refined, so my guess is that the wine is still coming together. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2015)
