97 Points Three Sticks is a fantastic new Pinot Noir producer owned by Bill Price, Chairman of Kosta Browne and Gary Farrel and owner of Kistler Vineyards. 97 points Decanter: "Even in potentially cool zones like the foggy Sonoma Coast, there's always a breadth and a grandeur to California's finest Pinot Noirs. What our judges liked so much about this example was the fact that its fundamental scale was no impediment to a sense of finesse and refinement in the fruit. You'll find almost perfumed, violet-and-rose scents behind the fresh plum, while on the palate this is a concentrated and vivacious wine with resonant black-fruit acidity, light tannins, delicious underlying sweetness and mouthwatering purity and freshness. Drink 2019-2025." 94 points Wine Enthusiast: This youthful wine is from several properties owned by the producer, including the Walala, Gap’s Crown, Durell and One Sky Vineyards. Earth, clove and tree bark tones provide a savory edge of complexity, followed by focused elements of baking spice, orange, pomegranate and strawberry. Structured yet bright, it is cohesive and delicious." 94 points Wine Spectator: "Luxurious flavors of blueberry, kirsch and dark cherry glide across the palate, with an enveloping creamy texture. Dark chocolate, spice and mocha details show on the fresh, juicy finish. Drink now through 2025. 865 cases made." The Price Family Estates Pinot Noir is a blend of our Estate Vineyards throughout the Sonoma Coast. The core of the wine comes from the Walala Vineyard, a 17-acre site set in the middle of 19,000 acres of redwoods in the furthest northwestern town of Sonoma County. The other key vineyards that make up this wine are Gap's Crown, Durell, and Alana. Each site brings unique characteristics and depth to this bold Pinot Noir. In this bottling, we love the fresh lavender and pine with a core of cinnamon and cherry that demands you keep going back for more. We adore this special Pinot Noir that serves as a tribute to the magnificent vineyards within Price Family Estates.
