95pointsScar of the Sea 2016 Block Q Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley)

From vines planted in 1973, this excellent bottling is superfresh with aromas of raspberry as well as loads of dark rock minerality, from crushed slate and wet clay to smashed soapstone. That earthy minerality shows on the sip as well, alongside sagebrush, thyme, peppercorns and intense boysenberry flavors. Matt Kettmann
