Qupé Roussanne Santa Maria Valley Bien Nacido Vineyard 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is 100% Roussanne from our Hillside Estate, Block 10 at Bien Nacido Vineyard. Block 10 it the culmination of an arduous project that I embarked on with Bien Nacido in 1996 when I decided to plant 5 acres of Tablas Creek Clone (read Chateau Beaucastel). This is a custom block, planted exclusively for us, on a sunny, west facing slope. We ordered the plants and prepped the ground over the 96-97 winter. When it came time to plant in the spring, we were delivered enough plants for 2/3 of an acre! Tablas Creek had more orders than they had plants, and then some of the plants we got didn't make it. Thus started the long process to get all 5 acres planted. We planted a bit more each year and by 2001 the block was complete.
