Wine Review: This dark brick red colored Pinot Noir from the Bien Nacido Vineyard is very good! It opens with a fragrant new oak and raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and round. The flavor profile is a spicy red plum with notes of new oak. I also detected hints of cherry-cola, blackberry and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and fruit flavors show very nice length. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our debut vintage of Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with lovely bouquet of strawberry bramble supported by undertones of cherry cola. On the palate, flavors of blackberry, cherry and currant are met by hints of tobacco and all spice. This savory Pinot Noir is elegantly structured with a long, satisfying finish.
