92+ points Jeb Dunnuck: "[$60 list] The first year Adam has worked with this fruit, the 2016 Pinot Noir La Encantada Vineyard saw 20% stems and spent 15 months in 40% new French oak. It offers more spice, dried flowers, and dried soil notes as well as more red fruits. Medium bodied, supple, with plenty of tannic grip, it's a beautiful, complex wine that should evolve nicely. Drink: 2018-2026. (2/14/19)"
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$60 list] Quite subtle at first on the nose, this bottling offers baked red-cherry aromas and a dusting of soil with some swirling. The palate blends dark red cherry with touches of sagebrush and wild thyme, lifted by a hint of white pepper. Alcohol 14.2%. (Dec 2018)"
90 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "[$60 list] Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir La Encantada Vineyard opens with smoke, tar and turned earth over a core of black fruit with black tea hints. Light to medium-bodied, it offers spicy dark fruits in the mouth, with firm, grainy tannins and good freshness on the long finish. 594 cases produced. Drink: 2019-2026. (Sep 2019)"
