FOXEN PINOT NOIR BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD - BLOCK 43
I loved the two Pinot Noirs from the Bien Nacido Vineyard, and both have distinct characters. The inky colored, rich, concentrated, yet gorgeously pure 2014 Pinot Noir Block 43 Bien Nacido Vineyard (destemmed and aged in 40% new French oak) gives up fabulous notes of very ripe raspberries, spring flowers, forest floor and a touch of oak in its textured, rich, layered, silky personality. This is a fabulous wine.
