ANTONIO GALLONI'S VINOUS MEDIA 94 POINTS - "Mikey Etzel (with his father and winery founder, Mike, still lending a hand) made a compelling set of Pinots in 2019 that must be counted among the top wines ever from this iconic producer. The trend toward brighter (but still powerful and intensely flavored) wines, with new oak influence receding, began well over a decade ago and continues apace today. The conditions of the 2019 growing season played favorably into that style. I was greatly impressed by the wines' detail and vibrant fruit expressions. The 'basic' Willamette Valley bottling keeps going from strength to strength, as does the Belles Soeurs, which in this vintage was the best version of that bottling that I have ever had."

"Saturated garnet. Energetic, finely etched red fruit and floral scents pick up smoky mineral, blood orange and baking spice flourishes with air. In a lively style, showing excellent clarity and spicy lift to the juicy raspberry, mulberry and cherry cola flavors. Puts on weight with air, with no loss of energy, and finishes impressively long and precise, the floral and spice notes repeating."

WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS - "Vibrant and detailed, with impeccably structured raspberry and guava flavors that are laced with orange peel and black tea notes, building richness and sleek polish on the long finish. Drink now through 2030. 2,644 cases made."
