2014 Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah
Santa Maria Valley
Located in the Santa Maria Valley, Bien Nacido Vineyard has become an iconic vineyard known for world class pinot noir and chardonnay. However, Bien Nacido also has the distinction of being the first California vineyard to plant cool-climate syrah. We are excited to introduce this into the Epiphany line-up. We aged this wine for 21 months in 100% French oak, of which 17% was new. While aging it developed a beautiful opaque purple color, arresting notes of blueberry, smoked meat, dried herbs, acacia flower, black pepper and baking spices are found aromatically. Dark fruit flavors abound on the palate with notes of dark chocolate, toast, iron and vanilla.
