Wine Advocate 90 points - Fascinating and penetrating herbal notes of dried dill, sassafras, and caraway seeds mingle with red currant and red raspberry in the nose of Adelsheim’s 2011 Pinot Noir Bryan Creek Vineyard, leading to a tart, juicy, and ultimately gripping palate impression. More texturally refined than the corresponding bottling from nearby Boulder Bluff, this finishes with bracing berry-freshness and invigorating seed-crunch as well as saliva-inducing salinity. I would anticipate its being worth following through 2016 if not beyond.
Wine Spectator 89 points - Bright and vibrant, with a crisp texture, this is light on its feet, cutting a swath of stony mineral flavor through the candied raspberry fruit. The finish lingers tautly. Best from 2015 through 2019. 375 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Spiced cranberry fruit highlights this tightly-wound young Pinot Noir. Some hard raspberry candy flavors continue through the mid-palate, with chewy acidity leading into a tight, tangy finish. (Dec 2013)
