Antonio Galloni

The 2015 Pinot Noir Akiko`s Cuvee is a selection of the best lots in the cellar that gets a bit more time in barrel as well. Dense and powerful in the glass, the Akiko`s Cuvee is built on striking textural depth and resonance. Orange peel, star and spice overtones hover over a core of generous fruit in this inviting Pinot. The Akiko`s Cuvee is another wine where all the elements seem to fall together quite naturally. 93 points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2015 Pinot Noir Akiko`s Cuvee is pale ruby-purple in color and sings of ripe cherries, pomegranate and wild strawberries with hints of Provence herbs, lavender, black pepper and tree bark. The palate is medium-bodied and delicately played with a quiet intensity of perfumed red fruits and finely grained tannins, finishing with great freshness. 408 cases produced. 92 points

Allen Meadows

With determined swirling the reserved nose grudgingly reveals perfumed aromas of lavender, violet, red cherry, plum and pretty spice wisps. The sleekly textured an d vibrant flavors possess a relatively sophisticated mouth feel before terminating in a beautifully well-balanced, complex and sneaky long finale. This too is lovely stuff. 93 points
