The 2015 Pinot Noir ‘The Captain’ wafts from the glass with complex aromas of wood smoke, wild berries and savory forest floor. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, cool and racy, with a crunchy core of fruit, fine-grained structuring tannins and lots of sappy energy, concluding with a penetrating finish. Like the 2014 rendition, this will need some time to really open up, but it’s a beautiful wine from Bien Nacido’s highest-altitute, most windswept plantings.
