The 2012 Bien Nacido Cuvée offers up classical tones of butterscotch, honeysuckle and colza accompanied by citrus and plenty of minerals. The palate adds nicely to the overall experience with balance and integration as the number one keywords. This effort drinks nicely right now, but I am sure there is some development to be found if given a year in the cellar.

    December 31, 2013 - From the producer: This is a lighter, fresher style of this wine than normal but with that distinct floral and peach character from the viognier (67%). This is balanced by citrus and green pear character from the chardonnay (33%).
