2015 Lytle-Barnett Brut: 96 points
"A recent trip to Oregon uncovered a treasure trove of more than just Pinot Noir, and I’m thrilled to recommend this new discovery with a big score. It shows depth and palate weight, and still needs some time to fully integrate, but it’s definitely headed in a great direction. Toast, dry citrus, tart apple and stony mineral aromas and flavors present in bold, bone dry style, but with richness and a long stony, toasty finish that will lengthen with some bottle age. UPDATE: I poured this again after it sat open in the ice bucket for 24 hours, and it was even better, with the fine mousse just pumping away. I don’t feel that I’m going out on a limb when I say this compares favorably with Krug Grand Cuvée. Take that!" -Rich Cook
2016 Lytle-Barnett Brut Rosé: 95 points
"A powerful Rosé that’s still coming together. There is a little oak influence here that works well in a bone-dry style that has its strawberry fruit just starting to peek out through the lemon zest oak tones. It’s age-worthy and for those who prefer a low to no dosage style. More brioche aroma develops with air, and like the regular Brut, it was still going strong after 24 hours open in the ice bucket. This is a winner!" -Rich Cook
