2014 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir
2014 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir
Santa Maria Valley
VINEYARD:With a rich history that extends back to 1837 as a Spanish land grant, Bien Nacido Vineyard is one of the most prestigious sites in the Santa Maria appellation, with a well-deserved reputation for truly exceptional Pinot Noir. We have sourced fruit from this historic vineyard for more than 20 years. For this release, we are one of the fortunate few to source some of the Pommard selection, 100% from the legendary Q Block – considered the most prestigious Pinot Noir block on this famous site.
 
TASTING NOTES:This wine offers a stunning array of wild dried mushrooms, bay leaves, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Traces of Oolong tea and white pepper work in tandem with figs, dates, and freshly grated coconut. Subtle flavors of dried strawberries and plums entice the palate while more complex secondary tones of tobacco leaf, leather, and Angostura bitters establish depth. The lively acidity and soft, integrated tannins provide a worthy backdrop to this always exceptionally complex and intriguing wine.
