FOXEN Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley, Bien Nacido 'Block 8' 2018

What a stunning Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir for $36. Aged for 10 months in all neutral French oak barrels, the expression of fruit isn’t masked by any oak tannins or flavors. The nose pops with fresh blueberry, red raspberry, dusty road, and dried poultry herbs. The palate is lean and fruity with gorgeous red cherry, cranberry and pink peppercorn. It’s a supremely quaffable wine with medium plus acidity and silky tannins that needs a slight chill on it before enjoying. 2669 cases produced. Best Buy.
