FOXEN PINOT NOIR BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD - BLOCK 8
The 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 8 is another terrific wine, yet it lacks a touch of the charm and elegance of the other Pinot Noirs here. Saddle leather, wild herbs, black cherries and framboise all emerge from this rich, structured, even tannic Pinot Noir that will benefit from short term cellaring. Like the other Pinots here, it was whole berry, destemmed and spent 17 months in 40% new French oak.
