95 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

The 2019 Pinot noir – La Encantada Vineyard is all about complexity, density and texture. The structure of this Pinot suggests it will age beautifully and easily hold up for decades, abounding with silky but ample tannins from the first sip all the way through the wonderfully long finish. Plush, ripe fruits – red and black plum – are complimented by notes of rich, organic soil and autumn leaves. A perfect combination of weight and balance on all fronts, this wine will have you captivated! -Lily Hays, Director of Hospitality and Education

95 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2019 Pinot Noir La Encantada Vineyard marries the natural intensity of this site with the verve that comes with picking on the earlier side. Red cherry fruit, blood orange, rose petal and sweet floral accents race across the palate. This energetic, beautifully translucent Pinot is fabulous." -Antonio Galloni

94 points - Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast

"Candied cherry aromas are cut by dewy herbs, cracked pepper and a hint of graphite on the nose of this four-barrel bottling. Fresh raspberry and cherry flavors make for a juicy palate, where hints of sage, wild thyme, and white pepper add considerable edge." -Matt Kettmann

92 points - Wine & Spirits

"This pinot changed frequently during two days of tasting, starting out warm and blunt, opening into a plum and carob-fruited richness. The mouth-filling extraction has tension and structure: This feels like it’s years from peak expression." —P.J.C.
