Paul Lato Notes: “Solomon Hills is a Grand-Cru-in-the-making site of great character, arguably the most unique in the Santa Maria Valley. The aromatics show gunpowder, black cherry, and strawberry jam notes of deep intensity and generosity. The palate is pure velvet, seamlessly balancing rich, tarry earth tones that cling to the palate with a bright acid lift towards the finish. Striking in both beauty and intelligence.”


Pinot File 94 Points: "The most westerly vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley appellation making it the coolest due to its proximity to the ocean. Low yielding vines of clones 115, 667 and 777. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Cozy fruit aromas of black cherry and raspberry are paired with aromas of fertile earth, spice, burnt tobacco and bark. A flood of black cherry, black raspberry and blackberry goodness greats the mid palate. Velveteen in texture with deft oak appointments. A juicy cut of acidity energizes the lengthy finish. Score: 94"


Robert Parker 2014 – 96 Points: “From a top site in the Santa Maria Valley that's just to the southwest of Bien Nacido, the 2014 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard Suerte comes mostly from clone 115, but has 25% each from 667 and 777. Aged 15 months in 75% new French oak, it's another lighter colored beauty that offers upfront, fresh and fruit-driven notes of strawberries, framboise, violets and spring flowers. Elegant, layered, pure and with good acidity and fine tannin, it's already hard to resist, yet should evolve nicely on its balance.”
