'Just slightly deeper ruby-hued, the 2017 Pinot Noir Knox Alexander comes from the Bien Nacido and Le Bon Climat vineyards. Another complex, meaty, savory Pinot Noir in the lineup, it offers loads of spiced cherry and redcurrant fruits as well as brambly herbs, underbrush, cured meats, and leather-like aromas and flavors. As with all the 2017s from this estate, it stays fresh and focused on the palate, with a tight, racy style.'
94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
