De Loach

The OFS Pinot Noir typifies a quintessential Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. Generous aromas of beef broth, baked blackberries and notes black cherries lift out of the glass and unfold to flavors of violets and cocoa powder on the palate before concluding with a soft, lengthy finish. This is a well-balanced wine that is approachable upon release but will continue to develop beautiful nuances with age. Enjoy with grilled rack of lamb with a honey mustard glaze.

Wine Enthusiast

A very fine Pinot Noir, dry and elegantly constructed, but it needs a little time in the cellar. That's due to the tannins, which are thick and noticeable in the way they create an astringency through the finish. The flavors are exceptionally rich, suggesting cherries, raspberries and tobacco, with a welcome sweetness from toasty oak.

Score: 93. —Steve Heimoff, April 01, 2012.

Wine Spectator

A subtle, delicate style, showing ripe black cherry, plum and boysenberry notes on a medium body, with baking spices, mineral and dried berry flavors rolling off the finish. Drink now through 2019.

Score: 91. —James Laube, April 30, 2012.
