2010 Bien Nacido
Santa Maria Valley / 750ml / 257 Cases
We feel privileged to have access to this excellent and historic site in the Santa Maria Valley. Our section, Block W, was planted in 1973 and is self-rooted Wente selection on alluvial soil, loam and river silt and is one of the oldest vineyards in the county. Owned and farmed by the Miller Family, Bien Nacido (meaning “good birth” in Spanish) has long supplied fruit to some of the best producers in California. This bottling yields core citrus aromas of lemon and kumquat, gingerbread spice and a charming rusticity. The wine is juicy with a beautiful presence and will offer up several years of good drinking.
