94 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2013 Pinot Noir Silver Eagle is from a vineyard owned by the well-known viticulturalist and winemaker Ulises Valdez. This is a blend of three clones: Calera, 828 and a suitcase clone from Vosne-Romanée known as VR. This is a bigger, richer Pinot Noir than the Occidental Ridge, with darker fruits and more forest floor, black cherry and blackcurrant notes, a lush, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and beautiful concentration and depth. This is a stunner that should drink well for another decade.
