2018 Bien Nacido "Old Vines" Pinot Noir
Hand-harvested at night, fermented with native yeast, and
malolactic fermentations. Aged for 16 months in French oak; 45%
new. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Our smallest Pinot Noir cuvée will be an instant collectible wine
with forty-seven years of vine growth contributing to the wine
being intensely perfumed with peony, tea roses, blackstrap
molasses, and cranberry coulis.
Monterey shaly loams. This comes from the own-rooted original
planting in 1973.
