Fess Parker Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard 2013

External Review:

Medium ruby core fades into a paler rim. This hearty pinot becomes more complex after a bit of a decant offering aromas of black cherry liqueur fresh raspberry and blackberry with an underlying current of sweet cedar wood dried herbs and licorice. The bouquet is mirrored on the palate highlighted by the bright acidity that stretches smooth and taut over a faintly dusty core. Tinged with a faint orange rind note at the back the silky texture and moderate tannins carry the wine through the finish. Justin Wong.

So too did the purchase of 714 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley change the course of the Parker family’s history. Realizing the potential of Santa Barbara County as a premium grape-growing region, Fess and his son, Eli, originally set out in 1989 to plant a small vineyard and sell fruit to local producers. But, as Fess’ daughter, Ashley explains, “ Fess is from Texas, so he can’t do anything small. “The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard now farms almost 700 acres on four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.

Captivating scents of black cherry and black raspberry mingle with a touch of nutmeg, forest floor and sandalwood. On the palate, the flavors of red currant, cranberry, vanilla, spice and mocha combine elegantly with a touch of oak.
