Jim Clendenen started working with the historic Bien Nacido Vineyard in the 1980's and the blocks currently used were planted exclusively for Au Bon Climat wines. The 2015 is another outstanding wine which opens to gorgeous aromas of wild black cherries, plums, exotic spices, dried leaf, crushed hazelnut and dried rose. An elegant wine with soft tannins and bright acidity on the finish. While this is utterly delicious today I expect it will further complexity and become even more compelling as it evolves over the next decade.
