93 Jeb Dunnuck - The 2019 Pinot Noir La Brisa hails from the Sonoma Coast and has a rich, ripe, sexy style that still shows elegance and purity as well as complexity. Lots of black raspberry and mulberry fruit emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort, which has plenty of bouquet garni and spice-laced aromatics, ripe, soft tannins, and a great finish. It brings lots of fruit in a balanced, textured, incredibly satisfying package.
92 Wine Spectator - A woodsy aroma leads to well-spiced flavors of chocolate brioche and dark plum tart, ending with concentrated toastiness on the long, juicy finish.
