Description

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 cranberry and tart raspberry with slate-driven minerality and a persistent woody spice. The texture is soft, but lifted by strong acidity.

93 Points 
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2016 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 8 is quite Burgundian in profile, wafting from the glass with aromas of wild berries, grilled game bird, spice and rich soil. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, sappy and savory, with fine tannins and a penetrating, sapid finish.
92 Points Jeb Dunnuck - A big step up over the Santa Maria Valley release, the 2016 Pinot Noir Block 8 Bien Nacido offers a terrific bouquet of black cherries, saddle leather, spice-box and dried herbs. It's fresh, nicely concentrated and textured, with good acidity, and will benefit from short term cellaring.
