94 Points!  They went for a slightly more reductive style in 2013, which shows as austere and backward in the 2013 Cincuenta y Cinco. That, combined with a cooler growing season resulted in a very elegant, subtle wine that is light-colored and has floral (roses, lilies) notes alongside wild strawberries and raspberries. It feels light but has very good concentration of flavors and enough clout, while keeping the poise. The tannins feel very refined, there is good freshness and acidity. It should have a very nice evolution in bottle. This would be the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. Bravo! 16,000 bottles.  Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com #220, August 2015
93 Points!  Fabulous aromas of light cloves and other spices plus dark fruits and citrus fruit. Full body, with super structure and richness yet plenty of tannin tension and bright acidity. Very vibrant. Whole berry fermentation with pinot noir that's biodynamically grown. Needs three or four years to come around, but superb.  James Suckling, May 13, 2015
 
92+ Points!  (aged for 14 months in French oak): Bright medium red. Pungent aromas of cranberry, pomegranate, raspberry, minerals and sandalwood, plus a hint of peppery spices. Silky and quite dry, showing lovely inner-mouth clarity and lift but only moderate flesh and sweetness. The adamantly dry finish hints at fresh herbs and spices. I never would have guessed that this Pinot was carrying 14% alcohol. Needs time to unwind but will it eventually blossom in the bottle? With 24 hours in the recorked bottle, this wine showed intriguing aromas of mint and quinine and a distinctly silkier texture, with a sweet, savory raspberry flavor emerging. The wine performed admirably in a flight of 2012 red Burgundies I happened to be tasting and I raised my score accordingly.  Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, February 2015
