This 2010 Selleck Vineyard Pinot Noir is astoundingly complex and exquisitely balanced. Alluring aromas include rose petal, cassis, fenugreek, black cherry, pencil lead and ruby grapefruit. The palate is intense, deep and lingering, showing flavors of roast duck, red fruits, savory basil and limestone dust. The finish is taught and focused, accentuating the long life ahead for this fascinating and alluring youngster.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Pinot Noir Selleck Vineyard is off the hook. Coming from a warmer, south-facing plot of vines, it offers up a knockout bouquet of black raspberry, liquid flowers, crushed stone and new leather to go with a dense, concentrated, yet sexy and hedonistically slanted palate that's grounded by a core of sweet fruit. Count me a fan. This beauty should be given a handful of years in the cellar and then consumed over the following decade or more. Drink 2015-2025.

Wine EnthusiastIf there's one California Pinot Noir you cellar this vintage, make it this one. It's a stone-cold guarantee. Light and silky in the mouth, with brisk acidity, it shows rich raspberry, cherry, red currant and sandalwood flavors that are deep and long. Has all the necessary balance to evolve many years, and should start showing bottle development after 2018.

Wine SpectatorFirm and tight, this offers aromas of tea and wild berry, with fine-grained tannins, ending with a mix of wild raspberry, red candy and pomegranate. Best from 2014 through 2024. 381 cases made.
