FOXEN PINOT NOIR BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD - BLOCK 43
The 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Block 43 offers lovely depth and creaminess in a surprisingly succulent style for this site. Then again, this parcel was planted for Foxen with Dijon clones that naturally yield generous fruit. Underlying beams of salinity confer freshness and persistence throughout that balance the fruit nicely. Sweet dark red and purplish fruit, mint and sweet spice meld into the fleshy, inviting finish.
