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.

A lesser-known but elite AVA within the larger Santa Barbara district, the Santa Maria Valley AVA runs precisely west to east starting near the coast. The valley funnels cool, Pacific Ocean air to the vineyards more inland, allowing grapes a longer hang time to ripen evenly and achieve their full potential by harvest time. Combined with minimal rainfall, consistent warm sunshine, and well-drained soils, it is an ideal environment for grape growing.

Many of the wineries here are small and highly respected, having established a reputation in the 1970s and 80s for producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. More recently, Syrah has also proven quite successful in the region. Many vineyards are owned by growers who sell their grapes to other wineries, so it is common to see the same vineyard name on bottlings from different wineries. Bien Nacido Vineyard is perhaps the best-known and most prestigious.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
