- 95 Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "The 2016 Pinot Noir The Haven Vineyard Estate is wonderfully lifted and aromatic, although it is a bit less giving on the palate. I would prefer to cellar it for at least a few years to see if a bit more depth emerges. Even today, though, in its somewhat reticent state, the Haven is very pretty. Hints of chalk, white pepper and citrus add energy to this finely sculpted Pinot."
- 94 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "From vines planted in 2001 and a cooler site that’s the last to be harvested, the 2016 Pinot Noir The Haven Vineyard has a beautiful perfume of ripe strawberries, flowers, and Asian spices. It’s about as classic Sonoma Coast as it gets and has fine tannin, a light, silky texture, and a great finish. It’s certainly one of the more friendly, approachable wines in the lineup as well."
- 99 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "The red cherries and subtle, leafy complexity, sweet spices, fresh earth and then savory notes, lead to a suave, long palate. This is seductive pinot at its very best. Super elegant and rich. Plush and luxuriant with tannins that command so gently now, but will deliver in time. Sheer pinot perfection."

The soils are extremely diverse including shales, sandstones, greenstone (undersea volcanic uplifted) and Yorkville series. All three were planted in 2001.
