Bien Nacido Vineyard - Block 11, Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara, CA
Scar of the Sea
What we love
Sourced from a very special block high on a hillside and tucked away in a canyon at the famed Bien Nacido Vineyard, one of the oldest vineyards in Santa Barbara. A wine of pedigree and distinction, the 2016 “Block 11” Chardonnay is California sunshine in a bottle, with rich texture, lemon and lime, hints of caramel, ripe pear, guava, citrus blossom, almonds, and a long finish. Terrific!
