93 Points Vinous
The 2016 Pinot Noir La Encantada Vineyard is laced with expressive red fruit character. The 33% whole clusters add aromatic nuance and lift without overpowering the wine. Rose petal, mint, orange peel, and pomegranate develop in the glass, adding perfume, silkiness and sheer appeal. Bright, chalky notes give the wine energy to match its somewhat taut, linear feel. There is so much to admire in this vivid, impeccable Pinot from Tyler.
