Finisher ! 2013 Block 8 Bien Nacido Foxen. Going to these Monday night dinners I have learned to either spit (yup) when trying all these great wines and or sip the very best! Really good here! Foxen is fruit forward, with gobs of rich fruit. A must try!! CB 94

Gluttony is one of the seven deadly ones.... This silked up fashionista is full of velvet and sin. Stellar!

From a recent Santa Barbara tasting event. Shroomy, loamy, deep and rich without being overblown.

Starts with a whiff of charcoal-grilled meat and juicy fruit, and finishes with strong (but well integrated) tannins. This was exceptional, part plum crisp and spearmint, with real concentration and drive.
