Block 8 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

2018 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 3.5 hours. Medium bodied. Super expressive in the nose and flavors, alternating between pretty raspberry/strawberry notes and earthy dirty mushroom/black olive impressions. Great Bien Nacido Vineyard swill. 12.7.23. — a day ago

This would have merited a higher score had I consumed it earlier. I waited a little too long. — 20 days ago

Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay 2021

Santa Barbera Chardonnay is really becoming a favourite of mine. The Pinot from SB seems to get all the attention here in Sweden but the Chardonnay is outperforming the Pinot by a mile. Very bright and well balanced. Seashell, pear, honey, hezelnuts, jasmin, tiger balm. — 7 months ago

Being an easily accessible SB in Sweden I must say I enjoy all their wines a lot, but I agree with your assessment on the Chdy.
