- 94+ Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "The 2015 Pinot Noir The Haven Vineyard Estate is dark, plush and inviting. Black cherry and plum fruit give the wine its dark, somewhat somber personality, but it is the wine's overall balance that stands out. Floral and savory overtones add nuance throughout. All the elements meld together effortlessly in a wine that captures the natural intensity of the year and yet remains quite refined. My impression is that the Haven is holding quite a bit back, as it is both less expressive than it was from barrel and also not quite as showy as some of the other wines in the range."
- 95 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "One of my favorites in the lineup was the 2015 Pinot Noir The Haven Vineyard, which comes from the Sonoma Coast. It has plenty of oomph and is a powerful wine, with classic black raspberry and strawberry fruits, spice, and spring flower aromas and flavors. Deep, concentrated, yet still in the house style with its finesse and elegance, I finished my note with "Love it.""
- 99 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Crazy aromas of Chinese spice, soy and dark fruits. Dark mushroom. Full body, incredible depth and intensity. Electric finish. Stone, mineral, spice. What a presence. Better in 2020 but gorgeous now."
