Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard The XO emerges from the X Block, the coldest site on the property, and is 100% Syrah grafted onto own-rooted Riesling. Aromatically explosive and intense, the 2016 remains bright and light on its feet for such an intense wine. Hints of black pepper, mint, lavender and licorice add layers of nuance. More than anything else, the XO is all class. This is such a tremendous wine."

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.
