2014 Bien Nacido Estate Syrah
Hand harvested at night, and fermented with native yeast, and malolactic fermentations. Aged for 18 months in French oak; 30% new. This wine was bottled unfiltered.
Exotic floral aromatics of violets, blue fruits, and sage draw you in, but it’s the rich entry on the peppery and precise palate that's a showcase of this vineyard. They complement the tightly wound but very long finish.
Los Osos clay loam and Franciscan shale, over marine volcanos.
