2018 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir
Bien Nacido sits on the eastern most opening of the surrounding mountain range just above Santa Maria, which allows a steady wash of cool ocean air over the coastal flood plains and through the vineyard. The vineyard was planted in 1973, which makes it one of the original vineyard plantings in the Santa Maria Valley. The grapes are farmed using bio-dynamic farming practices, alongside many companion crops, orchards and various farm animals. 50% new French oak for 18 months.
