Still a big boy. Roasted fruit, celery, toast spice, medium tannins and nice acid. I think these wines are too big to begin with and fall down once aged.

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!

Strawberry, black cherry jolly rancher, nutmeg, and earth aromas. Strawberry and cherry palate with great acidity and juicy palate.
