Robert Parker 96 Points: "Even better is the 2014 Pinot Noir Bastard Tongue, from a blend of Swan, Pommard and Dijon 115 clones, which was aged 22 months in 85% new French oak. Dark raspberry, strawberry and cherry notes give the wine a dark-red-fruit character, but there are also loamy soil undertones, underbrush, spice box and a rich, medium to full-bodied, fleshy mouthfeel. This is a complex Pinot Noir to drink now and over the next decade."

Winemaker Notes: "After becoming the portfolio's breakout star in 2011, each successive vintage of 'Bastard Tongue' has gone from strength to strength. The 2014 is no exception, reaching even more significant heights than ever before! As delicious and complex as ever, the 2014 is just packed with more of EVERYTHING — more fruit, more earth, more textures, more 'Pinotosity'. Deep, profound and delicious, walking that razor's edge of the fruit-laden glory of California Pinot Noir, with the variety's inherent complexities. Overt deliciousness, complemented by significant intelligence, and demand for ponderance. Think all you want, just don't forget to enjoy. Simply wonderful."
