2018 SITE BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD SANTA MARIA VALLEY SYRAH
JD96 | Tasting Notes from From Jeb Dunnuck, “The 2018 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyards was mostly destemmed (90%) and spent 18 months in 50% new French oak. It’s another inky hued effort that brings both richness and elegance. Lots of darker, briny fruits, smoked game, and black pepper notes give way to a medium to full-bodied wine that has silky yet present tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. It’s going to evolve for 15 years or more.” JEB DUNNUCK 96 POINTS
JS94 | Tasting Notes from James Suckling, “A fragrant nose of blackberries, dark plums, smoke, black pepper, cured meat and grilled herbs. It’s full-bodied with fine tannins and fresh acidity. Vibrant and racy with a spicy, meaty character. Compact, yet it has a juicy feel and a fleshy texture on the center-palate. Long, succulent finish. Drink from 2022.” JAMES SUCKLING 94 POINTS
94V | From Vinous, “The 2018 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyards is another fabulous wine in this range. Deep, inky and powerful, the 2018 possesses tremendous fruit intensity allied to soaring aromatics that give the wine so much presence. Lavender, mint, spice, new leather and chocolate are some of the many notes that build over time. The 2018 Vintage is impressive….” VINOUS 94 POINTS
