Wine Advocate, 95+ Points 

"Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Troubadour has a beautifully scented nose of dried violet and lilac, crushed stone, pipe tobacco, smoke, forest floor, mushroom and herbal touches over a black and red fruit core. Medium-bodied, it's wonderfully silky with layers of fresh black and red fruits, forest floor and potpourri, supported by very fine, grainy tannins and juicy freshness to lift the very long finish. This is beautifully balanced and so elegant. 229 cases were made." 

Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points 

"The famed winemaker's personal project, this beautiful wine is exuberant, exotic and spicy in cardamom, with strong flavors of plum, wild strawberry and dark cherry. Forest floor beckons at the door of the balanced midpalate, which shows plenty of savory personality within a frame of integrated oak, tannin and ripeness." 

Wine Spectator, 93 Points 

"Lusciously spiced crushed red fruit flavors glide across the palate. Crisp and fresh-tasting midpalate, featuring a finish that lingers with light cardamom and sandalwood notes. Drink now through 2025. 248 cases made."  

Winemaker Notes: 

"Blending the 2016 Troubadour Pinot Noir was so much fun with the addition of another cold site planted with the Calera clone. I was able to buy a small amount of fruit from the Graham Family Vineyard near Forestville to add to the Brandt Ranch and Stevens Vineyard. Again, long time Sonoma County farmer and friend Charlie Chenoweth helped me find these vineyards, and assisted in nurturing them through harvest. With the addition of the Calera to the Swan selection, Dijon 777 and Pommard, I was able to capture the mouthwatering textures that these Goldridge soils provide. The wine is a bit broader than the 2015 version with rich tannins, bright raspberry and wild strawberry flavors that finish with a juicy vibrancy. You can taste the sweet herbs and spices that express especially well in cool clime pinot noir. As I learn more about how these vineyard like to be farmed, future vintages will only get much better. 

I would consider aging these wines for an additional 3-5 years, but I also believe that they will have some longevity beyond. Cheers!"
