Winemaker Notes

Flavors of black and blue fruits, earthy with some dried tobacco and dark chocolate with a hint of vanilla and spice.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard has a beautifully intense core of black raspberries and black cherries over a violets, fragrant earth and baking spice perfume. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with ripe red and black berry flavors, supported by fine-grained tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with lingering spicy layers.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Rich red cherry, rust, smoke and crushed gravel aromas show on the nose of this bottling from the historic vineyard. Smoked meat, lavender and rose petal notes play with cranberry, pomegranate and hibiscus flavors, creating a pleasant mix of delicate and savory elements.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Ripe and rich-tasting, with plenty of cedary and savory notes to the ripe cherry, berry and damson plum flavors. Creamy accents extend on the seductively spicy finish. Drink now through 2022.

Santa Maria Valley lies mainly in northern Santa Barbara County, with a small portion of it overlapping southern San Luis Obispo County. It is close to the Pacific, and runs east-west, which means warmer air in the eastern end draws cool air off the ocean in the west, and brings it through the valley. This effect, combined with abundant sunshine, lengthens the growing season. The longer growing season leads to long hang time, which promotes both ripeness and optimal acidity levels in grape berries. As early as the 1970’s, Santa Maria Valley was recognized as being a superior source of wine grapes, certainly including Chardonnay and Syrah. But arguably the top variety here is Pinot Noir.

Originally a domain primarily of growers, including the Miller Family of the justifiably famous Bien Nacido Vineyard, this AVA is now home to over 30 wineries. Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir consistently offers full flavors of cherry, strawberry and raspberry, often accompanied by notes of spice, cola, vanilla and earth. They show impressive balance and elegance, as well as great versatility with food.
