100% Pinot Noir
Bien Nacido

Alert to the L’Imprévu fan, we decided to focus on the varietals we will be planting at the estate. 2018 will be the last vintage you will get your hand on the Pinot Noir. We still source the fruit from the Bien Nacido vineyard, located in Santa Maria Valley, about an hour south of Paso Robles, a cooler climate area. We barrel fermented the wine with about 25% whole clusters. This helps to enhance the spiciness and bring an elegant power to the wine. It is floral with great tannins. The length of the wine, with only 13% alcohol, tells me it could age up to 10 years.
