Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide:
"The robust and concentrated 2014 was matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (26 per cent new.) Deeply coloured, it is a powerful, savoury wine with deep, ripe plum, spice and dried herb flavours, moderately firm tannins, and obvious potential."

Grasshopper Rock Pinot Noir 2015

Deepish ruby-red. The nose is bright-fruited and vibrant with dark-red berries and thyme herbs. On palate, lovely up-front richness and flavour of red fruits and thyme herbs, and subtle spices. Layers of richness grow, and supported by very fine, powdery tannins, the acidity soft and poised. As good as Grasshopper Rock always is. A remarkable consistency. - Raymond Chan

The graceful 2015 vintage is already delicious, but well worth cellaring. Matured in French oak barriques, it is deep ruby, with rich, vibrant, plummy flavours, gentle tannins, savoury notes adding complexity, and an invitingly scented bouquet. - Michael Cooper

Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Earnscleugh Vineyard Pinot Noir gives fragrant notes of crushed red and black cherries, red currants and wild thyme with a hint of violets. Medium-bodied, it has a great core of expressive red berry flavors supported by grainy tannins and refreshing acid, finishing with a pleasant herbal lift.- Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW -The Wine Advocate #228
