"Plum juice, rose petals, pastry and tarragon aromas converge on the dynamic nose of this bottling. A strong core of plum fruit is enhanced by lavender and sagebrush on the vibrant palate. - Matt Kettmann"
"This fun and whimsical label from Brian Loring delivers his rich style of Pinot Noir at an affordable price, offering aromas of black cherry, forest herbs, damp sage and crushed slate. The palate is earthy, offering flavors of dark berry, fennel frond, roasted meat and clove. Matt Kettmann"
"It may be the least expensive in the extended Loring Pinot Noir family, and it may not make any claim of having come from a renowned site, but this very well-made wine is in no way lesser stuff and surprises with its richness, its fruity purity, its careful composition and its altogether unexpected depth. As tasty as it is now, it has the kind of balance that invites a bit of time in the cellar, and picky Pinot fans should not be dissuaded by its modest price. It is a wine that deserves attention." - Jeb Dunnuck, 89 points
"The value-priced 2016 Pinot Noir Cooper Jaxon is a juicy, delicious effort that offers everything you could want from a Pinot Noir at this price point. Raspberries, blackberries, spring flowers and hints of sappy underbrush all flow to a medium-bodied, juicy, lively and deliciously quaffable red to drink over the coming couple of years." - Jeb Dunnuck, 89 points
