94 points - Jeb Dunnuck

This maritime-influenced Pinot Noir leans to the savory side of the spectrum with umami notes, salinity and textural richness. The texture is created by the high proportion of whole-cluster fermentation which is made possible by the dense core of dark fruit flavors we always find at Rancho La Viña. From this we can create a beautifully balanced, structured, dense and layered wine that will age beautifully. -Lily Hays, Direct to Consumer Business Manager

"As to the reds, the 2020 Pinot Noir Rancho La Vina Vineyard was 50% destemmed and brought up in 30% new French oak. It has a beautiful bouquet of spiced cherries, framboise, peppery herbs, iron, and forest floor that carries to medium-bodied, ethereal, elegant 2020 offering ripe tannins and terrific purity." -Jeb Dunnuck

94 points, Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate

"Pale ruby, the 2020 Pinot Noir Rancho la Vina Vineyard has a nose of red and black cherries, mossy bark, mushrooms, tobacco leaves and tones of orange peel and Angostura bitters. The medium-bodied palate is chalky and very fresh with a core of perfumed fruits that give way to spicy accents sweeping across the long finish. 158 cases produced." - Erin Brooks

93 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2020 Pinot Noir Rancho La Viña Vineyard is bright and explosive in the glass. A rush of sweet red berry fruit, mint, chalk, white pepper and blood orange races across the palate. The 2020 balances tension with fruit richness, all frame by insistent tannins and brisk acids. It’s a beautifully done Pinot from SAMsARA and winemaker Matt Brady." -Antonio Galloni
