"The 2018 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 43 shows the more floral, lifted side of Bien Nacido, especially to the Block 8. Red berry fruit, chalk, mint, rose petal and white pepper give the Block 43 a distinctive upper range of brightness that works so well with its energetic, mid-weight personality. Light on its feet yet also deep, the 2018 is positively stellar." - Vinous, 96 Points

"Readers looking for a classic expression of this vineyard should check out the 2018 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 43. More plum/ruby-hued, with a big nose of salted blackberry and raspberry fruits, iodine, leafy herbs, and rocky minerality, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, bright, juicy acidity, some solid tannins, and a great finish. It shows the more mineral, briny, seaside style of this vineyard brilliantly and will keep for 7-8 years." - JenDunnuck.com, 94 Points
