2017 The Plow Pinot Noir
94 pts | Wine Spectator "Vibrant and full of tension, this balances refined layers of raspberry, dusky spice and flinty minerality with a handsome structure that builds elegant intensity toward fine-grained tannins. Best from 2021 through 2029." — TF
2018 The Plow Pinot Noir
94 pts | Wine Spectator "Graceful in its complexity and elegantly expressive, offering lithe raspberry and cherry flavors that are laced with a hint of crushed stone and black tea that build tension toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2029." - Tim Fish
2019 The Plow Pinot Noir
95 pts | Vinous "Deep magenta. Expansive red and dark berry and floral aromas are complemented by hints of star anise, sassafras and cola. Sappy, seamless and fleshy on the palate, offering intense black raspberry, cherry cola, candied lavender and mocha flavors underscored by a vein of smoky minerality. Seductive in character, finishing with powerful thrust and supple tannins that meld smoothly with the sappy, persistent fruit." - Josh Raynolds
Pairing suggestions from Larry and the team:
The Plow is a wonderful partner with rib-eye, New York and sirloin steaks, lamb shoulder, leg of lamb, lamb loin, roasted duck, grilled duck breast, savory preparations of goose and duck liver, porchetta, sautéed or grilled pork loin, wood-grilled meats and BBQ brisket. This wine is delicious served alongside peking duck, shaking beef, and mushroom rich dishes such as vegetables with shitake mushrooms and oyster sauce, or a simple porcini risotto. It’s terrific with pepperoni pizza or spaghetti bolognese, too!
