94 points Wine Spectator:"Poised and rich with nuance, offering elegantly layered green apple and lemon flavors, laced with wet pebble and delicately spiced lees notes. Drink now through 2023. 197 cases made."
This is a wine of great intensity from a neighboring site to Lingua Franca Estate that expresses a distinctive mineral characteristic. The resulting wine has a focused, intense character that feels light and pure, finishing with refreshing gunflint, lemon, and crunchy mineral nuances. It has weight but it is vibrant, filled with energy. - the winery

94 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Vibrant and full of tension, this balances refined layers of raspberry, dusky spice and flinty minerality with a handsome structure that builds elegant intensity toward fine-grained tannins. Best from 2021 through 2029."
Us: It smells amazing--red fruit essence, spice and floral accents--lifting right out of the glass and to your senses. Then it begins building...stacking luscious layers of texture and whole cluster complexity wrapped in pretty and pure red fruited Pinot glory. Elegance and depth to spare. The Plow pays tribute to Lingua Franca's vineyard workers and growers, who use organic and biodynamic farming methods, striving to disturb the vineyard soils as little as possible.
