Jeb Dunnuck – “Aged 18 months in 50% new French oak, the 2016 Pinot Noir El Jabalí has a Burgundian style in its ripe red and black fruits, spice box, earth, and forest floor aromas and flavors. These carry over to the palate as well, as this fruit-forward, rounded, impressively textured Pinot Noir has tons to love. It’s already drinking nicely yet should easily keep for 7–8 years.” (92 Pts)
Wine Spectator – “Dense and rich-tasting, featuring concentrated notes of hoisin sauce to the cherry tart and cocoa powder flavors. Extravagantly spicy, with some savory accents on the finish. Drink now through 2022.” (91 Pts)
