Our third vintage from Bien Nacido Vineyards, located in the Santa Maria Valley in central California, is a beautiful Pinot Noir.
To maximize the wine's delicate garnet color, we cold-soak on the skins, followed by a fermentation to dryness. After full malolactic fermentation to lend richness and depth, we age in French oak barrels for 12 months, giving a kiss of toasted vanilla on the nose and developing its silky tannin structure. Bright cherry and raspberry burst on the palate, and earthy wood undertones balance the finish.
