Tasting Notes

"My favorite of the lineup, the 2013 Pinot Noir The Captain offers a pretty, floral, raspberry, spice and forest floor-scented personality to go with medium-bodied richness, fine tannin, and beautifully integrated acidity. Completely destemmed and aged 18 months in 50% new French oak, it’s a flat out beautiful wine, and the only downside is that there are only 98 cases produced. Drink it anytime over the coming decade."

The Producer

Bien Nacido Estate

One of the oldest cool-climate vineyards in California and home of the world’s most single vineyard designations, Bien Nacido Vineyard has been an acclaimed source of world-glass grapes and estate wine since its founding in 1973 by brothers Stephen and Bob Miller.

Meaning ‘well born’ in Spanish, Bien Nacido was planted on the historic site of the Rancho Tepusquet land grant, a plot of land that was granted to Tomás Olivera in 1837, when California was still a part of Mexico. The Olivera Family’s adobe, built in 1857, still graces the estate today.

Purchased by the Miller Family in 1969, what is now Bien Nacido Vineyard began as the shared vision of brothers Bob and Steve Miller - to develop a vineyard that would be acknowledged as among the elite vineyards of the world. Four years of hard work led to the original vineyard plantings – 300 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Since then, under the Miller Family’s stewardship, Bien Nacido Vineyard has become one of the most coveted sources of cool-climate Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah in California.
