95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2017 Pinot Noir Lotus can thought of as the flagship cuvée and saw 60% stems and 50% new oak.  It reveals a ruby/plum hue that's semi-opaque. Gorgeous cherry, red currants, stems and spice notes emerge on the nose, and it has a meaty, complex, layered style, medium to full -bodied richness, beautiful tannins and a great finish.  It's another head-turning, singular, complex, Burgundian wine from this winery. I'd be thrilled to drink this anytime ove the coming 10-12 years, if not longer." -Jeb Dunnuck

95 points - Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Pinot Noir Reserve Lotus represents the best barrels of the vintage, and it's aged an extra year before release. Medium ruby, it features bright kirsch, bitter citrus, mushrooms and dark spices on the nose with wafts of potpourri. The palate is drinking beautifully, its seamless, silky structure and fresh acidity supporting intense fruits, and it has a long, mineral-driven finish. It deserves another 2-3 years in bottle." -Erin Brooks

 

93 points - Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast

"Intriguingly savory lines of sandalwood and wild sage elevate the dark rasberyy andn purple-flower aromas on the nose of this reserve bottling.  Dried strawberry flavors, leather and roasted game flavors show on the sip which remains tightly woound with more energy ready to emerge." -Matt Kettmann
