Bethel Heights Pinot noir Flat Block Reserve 05: Wine Spectator 91 points: "Supple and graceful. Shows real presence, with creamy cherry and huckleberry flavors, finishing on a creamy note. Lingers artfully against refreshing acidity. Best from 2008 through 2013.—H.S.

I wrote two words at the end of my notes on this wine: “purity” and “finish.” The Flat Block, which is 100% Pommard clone Pinot, features a lovely core of cherry and raspberry, with strawberry and dark cherry accents. The finish just sails...and sails.--Marcus

"Delicate aromatics: floral, strawberry, apricot, lots of stone fruit. Flavors of black cherry, blueberry, apricot skins, red fruits changing to stone fruit. Varietal, concentrated, good length and balance." - the winemaker

- Flat Block yields the most refined and elegant Pinot Noir, beautifully balanced, with a specificity of aroma and flavor that transcends vintage differences.

Wine Advocate (Robert Parker) 91 points: "Dark berries and hints of licorice can be found in the aromatic profile of the 2002 Pinot Noir Flat Block Reserve. This medium to dark ruby-colored wine is medium-bodied, reveals outstanding concentration, and sports a long, seamless finish. Its flavor profile, composed of a myriad of dark fruits (principally blackberries and dark cherries) is spiced with notes of freshly laid road tar. Projected maturity: 2006-2012."
