Andy Blue loved the 2010s from Clos de la Tech. Here are his reviews:

91 Clos de la Tech 2010 Pinot Noir, Estate, Santa Cruz Mountain Estates ($42)
Earthy and tannic, juicy black cherry with balance and depth.

94 Clos de la Tech 2010 Pinot Noir, Domaine Valeta, Santa Cruz Mountains ($62)
From a 2.5-acre vineyard located at 2200-feet above sea level; earthy, lightly herbal and spicy; high acidity and low tannins; juicy and extremely Burgundian.

94 Clos de la Tech 2010 Pinot Noir, Domaine Lois Louise Côte Sud, Santa Cruz Mountains ($62)
Juicy and balanced; dense with great structure and a charming astringency on the finish; clean and rich; balanced with elegance and style.

Lush, earthy, spiced; silky smooth, medium-bodied; perfumed, elegant and complex; deep, Burgundian and rich without being heavy.
