2014 Tyler "Bien Nacido N Block" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1343997 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard - N Block, from a parcel planted on own-rooted vines, shows all the eccentric aromatic nuance and wildness that is so typical of the Martini clone. Blood orange, pomegranate and rose petal give the N Block much of its raciness and complexity. Succulent and textured on the palate, the 2014 is super-impressive today. There's a lot going on in the glass, that much is obvious. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2016)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I loved the 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Old Vine, and it has a terrific bouquet of framboise, crushed flowers, forest floor and spice. Medium-bodied, supple, polished and elegant, with fine tannin, drink this classy, elegant, streamlined beauty over the coming decade. Like the other releases here, it was destemmed and spent 15 months in French oak, 40% being new. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "Bien Nacido’s N Block is one of three old vine parcels of Pinot Noir located at this famed vineyard site and Justin’s favorite. These original, own-rooted vines planted to Heritage and Martini Clones of Pinot Noir date back to the vineyards beginnings of the early 1970’s. Having worked with the N Block the longest we believe it is the most complete of the three old vine parcels of the Bien Nacido Vineyard."
