Wine & Spirits, 94 Points 

"Small yields and moderate to warm weather result in a Mills that’s generous in 2018, with a richness that’s delicious and satisfying. Mike Waller has managed to retain a wild savor here that gives the wine completeness and intricacy, a complex spice of dust and herb oils, sundried tomato and an earthy, rooty depth, all woven seamlessly around the fruit. It should age beautifully.

Vinous, 93 Points 

"The 2018 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard offers tons of aromatic presence to match its nervy, decidedly mid-weight personality. Crushed red flowers, blood orange, cinnamon, star anise and red berry fruit are nicely lifted. There is a bit of nerviness, and yet the 2018 comes across as one of the more open knit of the estate Pinots." 

Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points 

"Roasted cherry and juniper aromas give a rugged mountain angle to this bottling, but there's also splashes of fresh fruit. Gritty tannins could use a touch more time, but they wrap firmly around flavors of elderberry, blackberry, chaparral herb and oak. Drink 2023–2038. Cellar Selection

Wine Spectator, 92 Points 

"Enticing, with expressive blood orange, red tea and mulled raspberry aromas and flavors racing through. Features light incense and savory accents on the finish, which shows nice tension and length.

Winemaker Notes:  

"Planted in 1984, at an elevation of 2,200 feet, Mills Vineyard consistently yields an effortlessly complex wine that strikes a lovely balance between elegance and energy. Offering the classic red berry and cherry flavors that Mills is known for, along with deeper layers of lush black fruit, thyme and white pepper, there is a graceful suppleness to this wine that carries it to a sleek, focused finish.
