Bien Nacido Vineyards Pinot Noir 2011


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Hand harvested at night, and fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations. Then aged for 16 months in French oak; 30% new. This wine was bottled unfiltered. Spicy dark aromas of cherries, pipe tobacco, cloves, and cola. Black tea and dark fruits dominate the decidedly masculine palate.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido is also superb, with a Burgundian-like aromatic profile of underbrush, decaying leaves, forest floor and sweet berry fruits. Medium-bodied, rich and nicely concentrated, with a still compact feel, it's another solid wine that will have over a decade of longevity.
