Optik 2020 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley


750 ml

"A light, piercing and slightly high-toned version, with tobacco leaf and tarragon accents that are quickly caught from behind by bitter cherry, pomegranate seed and blood orange flavors. Very racy, taut acidity lines the finish. Best from 2023 through 2028. 480 cases made." Wine Spectator 92 Points

"This collaboration between Winemaker Joey Tensley and the Miller family is producing attention-grabbing wines, including this bottling, which begins with candied cherry, vanilla ice cream and anise on the nose. Muddled cherry, cola, chai and oak flavors converge on the creamy, full palate. " Wine Enthusiast 92 Points

"The 2020 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard is another good value and offers bright cherry and strawberry fruits to go with background spice, floral, and dried herb aromatics. Nicely textured and medium-bodied, with ripe tannins, drink this incredibly charming, forward Pinot Noir over the coming 3-5 years.
These Optik releases are made by Joey Tensley and are outstanding across the board. They also represent good values, and they all have lots of up-front appeal." 91 Points Jeb Dunnuck
