92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark The 2011 Pinot Noir La Caprice, which was harvested before any damaging rains arrived and is above the fog line on the Sonoma Coast, exhibits classic notes of black raspberries, graphite, flowers, red and black fruits, spice and forest floor. Not quite as rich or dense as the 2010, or as structured and chewy as the 2009, the evolved, seductive 2011 should provide enormous pleasure over the next 10-12 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

93 points Decanter
Outer quote mark The Pinot for this wine is sourced from the Seaview Vineyard, planted in 2006. It ranges in elevation from 305m to 457m above sea level and is composed of a patchwork of rocky alluvial sediments, decomposing volcanic material and clay. Ideal for beef Bourguignon, this has a seductive rusty ruby colour. Its dried bramble and red rose bouquet is complemented by tar and cigar box. Red cherries and a hint of eucalyptus lead into a long and elegant finish. (ED) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Heady scents of black raspberry, candied flowers, cola and Asian spices. Sappy, expansive and pure, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors and touches of star anise and cinnamon. Rich but lively, even delicate. Seamless and sweet on the lingering finish. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

91 points Vinous
Outer quote mark Black cherries, smoke, cola, plums and licorice are some of the many notes that jump from the glass in the 2011 Pinot Noir Le Caprice. This is the most powerful and structured of the 2011 Pinots. Firm tannins support the bracing, vibrant finish. Here it is the wine's broad shoulders and pure intensity that stand out most. I very much like the energy and tension in the 2011. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator
Outer quote mark Refreshing, lively and vibrant, with zesty wild berry, raspberry and anise flavors that are tight-knit and focused, ending with a beam of juicy berry flavors. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2013)
