Bob Campbell MW  96/100
This is a classic Grasshopper Rock pinot noir with the volume turned up. It's richer, fleshier and more approachable than usual but has the distinctive cherry, violet, herb and mineral Grasshopper Rock signature. 25 Sep 2020 Drink 2020–2030

Michael Cooper – Buyer’s Guide to NZ Wines   5 Stars
deep, purple-flushed colour. A powerful young red, it has intense, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury and earthy notes adding complexity, firm tannins, and excellent freshness, density and length. Open 2020 onwards.

Decanter World Wine Awards 2019
Ample ripeness of red fruits and charming aromas of violet, thyme and plum. Structured and silky on the palate, bursting with freshness, generous and ripe.
