Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 points
“The 2018 Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley, which contains a 1% splash of Petit Verdot, has a medium garnet color and opens with spicy notes of dried flowers, blood orange, cherries and mossy bark. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated and layered with bright freshness and a grainy structure to support, finishing long and flavorful. 440 cases produced.”

To understand EDICT's mantra of truth, generosity and love, all you need to do is begin with an appreciation of premium crafted wines. Wines that are loved the most are the ones that remain true to the grape and its sense of place. Those three simple words have helped shape their beliefs that great wines are nurtured from wine to press to barrel to bottle and finally to your table. The basic principles of truth, generosity and love guide their winemaking decisions - creating small production, hand-crafted wines from the Napa Valley and beyond.
Fresh baked berry pie with an orange coulis is how we’d describe this - perfumey and flowery, with cool berries and lots of complexity. This price? Stock up!
This is one of those. Dark and bright, it ticks the rich fruit complexity boxes with a flourish. It has that ethereal spiciness and baking cherry charm of Anderson Valley, but there’s a meatiness and weight behind it that gives the wine a fuller, deeper feel.
