Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"Cultivated on Anderson Valleys high eastern ridge, this remote vineyard is full of chunky, broken rock pieces in thin soil. Pinot Noir vines strain to cling to the steep faces along the ridgelines, yet produce deep, profoundly complex and age-worthy wines. Wild strawberry jam aromatics with smoky, briary and raspberry flavours, finished with a burst of blueberry."


90-93/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2012 Vintage)
"There are nearly 3,000 cases of the 2012 Pinot Noir Jackson Estate Outland Ridge. Made from Dijon clones 828, 667 and 777, this beauty moves towards Pinot Noir’s blue fruit spectrum, displaying notes of blueberries and raspberries. It was aged in equal parts new French, old French and old American oak. A terrific wine offered at a reasonable price, this supple, velvety textured Pinot should drink well for 4-6 years."


91/100 Wine Enthusiast, October 2014 (2012 Vintage)
"This substantive Pinot shows definite toasted oak character along with ripe fruit, full body and firm tannins. Hints of oak smoke and caramel waft over the ripe plum aromas. The flavours go to dark cherries and coffee, the texture is attractively astringent from tannins, and the finish carries a little bite. Well done but not overdone."


4 Stars & 18.0-/20 Raymond Chan, November 2014 (2012 Vintage)
"Clones 828, 667, 5, 777 and 117 from the ‘Outland Ridge’ vineyard, Anderson Valley,in Mendocino, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 59% French oak, 30% new. Dark, deep ruby-red colour with a lighter rim, youthful in appearance. This has a full, solid and dense bouquet packed with ripe black berry and plum fruit aromas infused with earth, spice and oak elements that open out in the glass. Some funky mineral and game nuances emerge, adding to the complexity. Full-bodied, the palate is packed with firm and concentrated black fruits and earthy flavours with an array of complex dark herb, mineral and oak notes. This is beginning to show some secondary meaty development. The wine is firmly textured with prominent structure, with the acidity in the background lending energy and contributing to the drive to the finish. This is a fulsome, solid and gutsy Pinot Noir with black fruits and earthy flavours. Match with slow-cooked game meat over the next 7-9 years."
