"The 2020 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 43 is another bold, racy Pinot from Foxen.  Dihon clones (667 and 777) yield a Pinot with tons of structure to playoff its red-fruit leaning.  I would cellar this for a few years,m as the tannins are quite imposing at this stage.  HInts of white pepperm chalk, mint and crushed rocks lend sabory intensity throughtout. " Vinous, 93 Points

"Glistening neon ruby cored with a light pink rim, the Bien Nacido Block 43 Pinot Noir from Foxen is gorgeous from start to finish. Resting for 16 months in about 30% new French oak, it starts off with aromas of freshly cut strawberries, pomegranate syrup, pencil shavings, and white pepper. The palate brings spicy and mineral notes to the wonderful acidity and grippy tannins. A lovely wine and one that I highly recommend. A little over 300 cases were made.
