2015 Bien Nacido Estate Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley

$59.95

The story of Bien Nacido Vineyards begins when brothers, Bob and Steve Miller came together with one vision – to develop a vineyard that would be acknowledged among the elite vineyards of the world. Bob and Steve found a piece of land just north of Santa Barbara and instantly realized the immense potential in the high elevation land and the unique climate. In 1973 they purchased 300 acres of diverse soil and planted the Bien Nacido vineyard, the name meaning well born in Spanish, because of the passion and commitment they shared in bringing it to life. 

The vineyard is in the Santa Maria Valley AVA, one of the coolest wine growing climates in California. The terroir is made up primarily of sandy loam, chalk, gravelly loam and marin loam. Wine Enthusiast named Bien Nacido in the Top Grand Cru Vineyards in California. Looks like Miller’s dreams have come true! 

Wine Advocate loved the 2015 Estate, “offers up a classic bouquet of plum compote, red berry fruit, preserved orange and cracked pepper. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, with lots of concentration and a layered mid-palate, framed by juicy acids and rich structuring tannins.” Give this wine thirty minute decant, sip and enjoy.
