Rated 92 Points James Suckling
Notes of juicy raspberries and kirsch with ground spices, dried orange peel and dried herbs. Medium-bodied with crunchy, chalky tannins and vivid acidity, giving it tone and structure. Flavorful finish.

Rated 92 Points Jeb Dunnuck
Dark ruby with a light purple tinge, the 2021 Pinot Noir Vespidae is floral and inviting, with ripe, wild black raspberry coulis, violets, and moss-covered earth. Medium to full-bodied, it has a more focused feel, with ripe tannins, a stony mouthfeel, a nice balance of earthy texture and pure, ripe, meaty fruit, with a touch of toasty incense on the finish.
