Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah 555 2018

Needs hours of air. Nose of olives, ripe grapefruit, garrigue, and red Twizzlers. Palate is zesty and juicy with underripe fruit. Should hold this peak for some time but hard to imagine this being better in 5-7 years. — a month ago

Sebastiano Vineyard Syrah 2015

This is fantastic. The fruit is quite powerful, but has plenty of savory balance & pronounced structure. Nose is floral and continues to lift with each moment of air. Love this stuff. — 3 years ago

Love their wines! And just a great family story. He works closely with Raj Parr. The Mourvèdre is out of control.

@Eric Urbani around $50. @Austin Hohnke will keep an eye open for the Mourvèdre.

Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah

Tastes like a cigar box smells.....in a cedar closet. Super bitter barky aftertaste, and dirty swig-from-the-bottle fun after two days open. Something amazing from Lompoc. — 3 years ago

Some decent fruit but not enough depth, maybe young vines? — 4 months ago

Anika Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah 2016

Outstanding Syrah from Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley, a site Rajat Parr has been exploring for a number of years (some, in collaboration with Piedrasassi) to craft a California Syrah to match the northern Rhône best ones (if you've read Rajat Parr's Atlas of Taste, you know he's obsessed with Thierry Allemand). Lively, balanced, delicious. — 3 years ago
