FOXEN PINOT NOIR BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD - BLOCK 8
The 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Block 8 is a bit darker and fleshier than the Block 43, with more of a vertical expression of structure, greater tannic heft and notable breadth in its shape. Dark spice, lavender, sage, iron, game and mint infuse a core of blue and purplish-hued stone fruits. This is an especially brooding, intense Pinot from Foxen, and yet all the elements are impeccably balanced.
