Bien Nacido Well Born Syrah

REGION California, USA
ABV 14.000000000000002%
Product description

Hand-harvested at night and fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations. Aged 16 months in 600-liter French oak puncheons; 45% new. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Co-planted and co-fermented with Viognier, about 1% in all, this wine is an homage to our friends in the Northern Rhone Valley, but remains quintessentially Bien Nacido. Lavender, sage and flame seared meats dominate the aromatics while papaya and other tropical fruits began to show as the wine opens and breathes. Generous fruit character on the palate gives way to incredibly silky tannins that carry all the way through the finish. Open today and enjoy the fresh fruit and flowers or age ten years and beyond as this Syrah continues to develop nuance complexity.
