Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Pinot Noir Selleck is a brilliant 2011 that does everything right. Framboise, rose petal, sappy underbrush and spice all give way to an energetic, taut and vibrant-styled Pinot that has perfect balance and fine tannin structure. Fermented with 100% whole cluster and aged 18 months in 30% new French oak, it's a rocking effort to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years.

Wine SpectatorTight and rustic, with firm, chunky blueberry and wild berry flavors, featuring subtle watermelon and strawberry accents in the background. Ends with vibrant acidity, flinty minerality and a refreshing finish. Best from 2015 through 2023.
