2014 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir
- Wine colour
- USA > California > Santa Barbara County
- Chanin Wine Company
The 2013 is a delicious and serious wine, racy and focussed, with sublime balance and length. This is high-class juice in every respect, packed with bright citrus flavours, subtle stone fruit and full of mineral complexities, possibly outshining any other Californian white we`ve tried (that has even been close to this price point). The impressive phenolics give a breadth and texture that you simply don`t see from other winemakers and there`s a chalkiness and tang to the wine that is reminiscent of Grand Cru Chablis. It`s almost impossible to resist now, but will only get better and better and we wouldn`t hesitate to cellar for up to 5-8 years (or beyond!). Just gorgeous!
