2018 Bien Nacido Grenache
Santa Maria Valley
ONLY 45 CASES MADE!!! Brilliant magenta. An assertively perfumed bouquet of ripe red and blue fruits, Moroccan spices and incense and carries a smoky overtone. Sweet, penetrating raspberry preserve, cherry, lavender pastille and spicecake flavors show impressive depth as well as vivacity. Displays superb clarity and florality on the finish, which features smoothly interwoven tannins and lingering spiciness. This wine shows just how much complexity can be achieved, even in a frost vintage, in the absence of any new oak."
