Description

This wine is a quintessential example of the high pedigree of fruit from the fabled Bien Nacido vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley.

Big, rich and velvety on the palate with loads of forward cherry & strawberry fruit framed in with complex spice, cola and toast characteristics. This wine is eminently drinkable today but also has a great track record of aging for 8-10 years. Cheers!

Wine Critic Reviews
"...an attractive, ethereal wine. Rose petal, mint, sweet red cherry, spice and blood orange all lift from the glass. This is a pretty restrained expression of Bien Nacido. A dollop (25%) of whole clusters adds gorgeous savory presence throughout." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "Stewed cherry and smoky mesquite aromas swirl into an inviting nose on this bottling from a historic vineyard. The palate is very cohesive and well integrated, from the grippy structure and brisk acidity to the smoked cherry, white pepper, crumpled sage, oregano and incense flavors." ~ Wine Enthusiast "...is another translucent ruby/plum-hued release that has lots to love. Ripe cherries, mulberries, peppery herb, and scorched earth notes define the bouquet, and it hits the palate with some classic Bien Nacido structure and tannins, offering medium-bodied richness, outstanding balance, and a great finish..." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
