2016 Bien Nacido Pinot Noir
Coming out of the gate, this wine is ready to play, as are many of the 2016s– Open and Opulent. The classic spicy black tea, iron oxide, and dark fruit jump out of the glass. We love this wine with any reduction sauce. Our favorite is a morello cherry gastrique with cardamom and white pepper. We recommend drinking this wine from 2019 to 2030.
