Pinot Pack Bien Nacido & LXXIII
2018 Bien Nacido Estate Pinot Noir
You will feel like an adult in a candy shop drinking this wine. Its amazing how black cherry bubblegum and red rope vines can so well play off a damp earth and mushroom nose.
2016 Bien Nacido Estate LXXIII Pinot Noir
Hand-harvested at night, fermented with native yeast, and malolactic fermentations. Aged for 16 months in French oak; 30% new. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
This wine is very Bien Nacido on the nose with mandarin, mahogany, and anise. The palate is fine but firm with understated elegance that has plenty to reveal if given enough time.
