Foxen Block 8 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

$59.99

95 Points                                        Beautiful New Pinot Noir release from Foxen - limited. 96 Points Wine Enthusiast: "This block-designate wine shows flamboyant aromas of red cherry, cola, purple flowers and light caramel. The palate offers an amazingly cohesive and zesty experience, combining piquant creanberry and tart raspberry with slate-driven minerality and a persistent woody spice. The texture is soft, but lifted by strong acidity." Robert Parker:  ..I continue to be blown away by this estate, which is run by Dick Dore and Bill Wathen, with Bill taking the helm of the winemaking and viticulture.  This terrific estate deserves more attention in the market!

From a recent Santa Barbara tasting event. Shroomy, loamy, deep and rich without being overblown.

Best so far. Medium body, still on the spicy side but smoother than others. Some earth and tannins at the end. Good but not worth the $.
