Wine Advocate 90 points - Darker, more earthy and spicy is the 2011 Pinot Noir Manchester Ridge, for which 15% whole clusters were used as well as 50% new oak. A deeper colored, more muscular style of Pinot Noir, it reveals blacker fruits in addition to spice box characteristics. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.  (Dec 2013)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Big and rich for the vintage, with a dense core of chewy flavors built around dark berry, spice, mineral and light cedar. This is most engaging on the finish, where the flavors gain depth and fan out. Drink now through 2021.J.L. (Nov 13 2013)

Kenneth Juhasz and his wife and partner Laura are proprietors of this boutique label, concentrating on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Growing up in North Carolina, Juhasz paid his way through college working in fine restaurants and at a local wine retailer. He first developed his winemaking talents in Oregon’s Willamette Valley working with veteran winemaker Ken Bernards of Ancien Wines . He also spent time in the Central Otago region of New Zealand’s South Island helping to launch Hinton Estate. In 2002 he settled in Carneros as the winemaker for both the Robert Stemmler label and The Donum Estate. The focus of Auteur is on vineyard designated wines from cool microclimates in Oregon and California. Juhasz’s winemaking philosophy is “to maintain the dualism between the varietals’ masculine and feminine character. Grapes are currently sourced from the Willamette Valley (Shea Vineyard), Sonoma Coast (Durrell), Los Carneros and Mendocino Ridge.
