Santa Barbara County - This wine is quintessential Bien Nacido, big, rich and velvety on the palate with loads of forward cherry & strawberry fruit framed in with attractive spice, cola and toasty characteristics adding complexity.


Vinous 91 WA 90+ Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - The 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard is all about nuance and understatement. Expressive floral and savory notes meld into a core of pliant fruit, supported by beams of minerality. Crushed rose petal herb, mint and raspberry add nuance on the relaxed, laid-back finish. Most of the Fess Parker wines are quite overt; the Bien Nacido, on the other hand, requires a bit more involvement from the taster.

According to Wine Advocate - A wine that has some upside, the 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard offers a touch of candied cherry to go with classic strawberry, exotic flowers and mint. Seeing 20% whole clusters and 18 months in 27% new French oak. Medium-bodied, with good fruit and excellent purity, it too has bright acidity and a focused, lively character. In short, it's a beautiful Pinot Noir that shows classic Bien Nacido character, will benefit from short-term cellaring and have a decade of longevity. 14.5% ABV.
