Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points

"Good balance and a plethora of juicy, ripe fruit flavors highlight this full-bodied wine. It has generous black cherry and light baking-spice aromas, plenty of cherry and sour cherry in the flavors and a moderately tannic texture livened by good acidity." 

Jeb Dunnuck, 91 Points 

"A different beast coming from the Anderson Valley in Mendocino County, the 2016 Pinot Noir Kite’s Rest offers more red and blue fruits as well as notes of candied violets, bay leaf, underbrush, and incense. Supple, nicely textured, with terrific purity of fruit, and nicely integrated acidity, it’s another terrific wine from this estate." 

Wine Spectator, 91 Points 

"Complex and refined, if on a modest scale, this presents a trim mix of graceful plum and wild berry flavors shaded by spice and light oak notes, gaining depth and dimension on the finish."
