THE WINE SPECTATOR, FEBRUARY 2013
2010 Bethel Heights Vineyard Chardonnay Estate Grown – 90Fresh and lively, showing citrusy tamarind accents around a racy core of green pear fruit. Should benefit from a year or two in the cellar. Drink now through 2015.
2010 Bethel Heights Vineyard Pinot Noir Casteel Reserve – 94($60) Smooth, round and expressive, light-footed but bursting with currant, blackberry and ﬂoral ﬂavors, hinting at mint and wet stone as the ﬁnish lingers effortlessly against ﬁne-grained tannins. Drink now through 2020. – H.S.
2010 Bethel Heights Vineyard Pinot Noir West Block – 92Dark and spicy, with a floral quality to the blackberry and cherry fruit, all flowing smoothly over an open-weave frame. Lingers with tantalizing deftness. Drink now through 2018.
