"This famous vineyard became so because of Chardonnay like this offering from Brooks Painter's team. It combines full throttle pleasure with the structure to gain complexity of its layered varietal character with time — if you can wait. I would bet that to be an unlikely prospect if you taste it now. The current deliciousness factor is seductive."

Vineyard Notes
Bien Nacido Vineyard is an iconic American vineyard located in the Santa Maria Valley along the Central California coast, which has been producing highly acclaimed wines for over 40 years. It has been named one of the top 25 vineyards in the world by Wine & Spirits Magazine, named one of the top Grand Cru vineyards in California by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Winemaker Notes
The 2019 year has been one of contrasts and challenges in Northern California. A cool, very rainy winter with flooding in the North Coast, some mud-slides followed by hot spells, windy and inclement weather during bloom and flowering- just another average year! The cool spring, clear, sunny month of June and moderate temperatures through July and August allowed the vines to develop grapes in pristine conditions. By late summer things started to warm up, and continued through early September to bring sugars and the concentration of flavors to ideal levels...Overall the 2019 Vintage looks to be another fabulous year for wine!
Food Pairing Notes
An excellent full-bodied wine to pair with chicken cordon bleu, lobster bisque, or crab cakes.

Nice balanced between butter, oak, and citrus/fruity bright flavor.

Vanilla smell, lemon tastes, slowly leaves your tongue. Acidic but good.
