Description

Bien Nacido is a cool-climate vineyard located midway up the Santa Maria Valley on the far north end of Santa Barbara County. Located just 16 miles east of the Pacific Ocean, maritime-influenced morning fog and cool afternoon breezes make for a slow ripening grape with longer hangtime on the vines. The result is this full-bodied Syrah with dark fruit flavors, dark chocolate, anise, vanilla, baking spices and espresso.

The Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah pairs beautifully with grilled lamb, braised beef or grilled eggplant.
