A vineyard originally planted in 1973 to own-rooted vines, Bien Nacido Vineyard blankets the south-facing slopes on the eastern Santa Maria River Valley, 16 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The vineyard blocks are interspersed with avocado orchards and strawberry fields. The backbone of this wine comes from Blocks 1, 7 and 9, all sustainably farmed hillside plantings. We also included grapes from Block N, one of the original 1972 plantings of own-rooted Martini clone, a vineyard practice rare anywhere in the world. Our 2014 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir has a royal garnet color. It has a nose of black plum, rose petals and a note of earthiness. On the palate this wine has a fruit-sweet attack and notes of black cherry, wild mushrooms and malt. It has beautiful weight, fine-grained tannins and a long fruit-filled finish. This central coast Pinot Noir will pair with anything from your favorite Chinese food to Santa Maria style barbequed tri-tip.
