Bien Nacido Estate 2018 The Captain Reserve Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley)

This is an epic bottling—one of the last for winemaker Trey Fletcher before he moved to a new project. Fresh pomegranate and raspberry-leaf aromas meet with singed sage, tea leaf and raw pork on the nose. The palate is tightly woven, offering snappy pomegranate, singed boar skin, matsutake mushroom and rosemary flavors in all the right ways. Matt Kettmann
