2018 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir 100% Whole Cluster

Inspiration Series Limited Release

2018 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir 100% Whole Cluster

Santa Maria Valley

Tasting Notes
This captivating Pinot Noir was produced entirely out of the love of experimentation. We had decided to make a 100% whole cluster wine from a different site, so we thought it would be fascinating to see how a Central Coast Pinot Noir would turn out, given that the naturally cool coastal climate tends to produce nicely ripened stems. Initial aromas are like an elixir of raspberry-mint compote, Indian Cardamom black tea, rose water and anise. The stem notes are present but beautifully integrated, complimenting earthy notes of rhubarb and tamarind, while accentuating the exotic fruit flavors of guava and Mangosteen. The texture is delicate and polished, with bright, juicy acidity and seductively silky tannins lingering into a persistent finish.
Vineyard Notes
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 Valley 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.
