Anthony Galloni 95 Points: “One of the highlights in the range, the 2014 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard - W Block exudes class. Lemon confit, chamomile, butter, orange blossom and lightly honeyed notes all flesh out effortlessly. The Bien Nacido is an especially creamy, voluptuous Chardonnay within the Tyler range. Today it is particularly expressive. The W Block emerges from old vines planted in 1973.”


Winemaker Notes:” Dense and powerful, full of lemon curd, anise and black tea. Well structured with bright acidity and minerality. 225 cases produced; 12.7% alc. 2014 the earliest vintage of the the decade so far. *From the eastern edge of the Bien Nacido property, here the vines grown in the most shale laden gravel soils. These well drained, mineral soils along with the fact that the vines are planted on their own roots back in 1973 always produce the most powerful chardonnay. We were down 30% overall, but super intense, wines with good acidity.”
