Chanin Wine Company, Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

Gavin Chanin, one of the state’s hot young winemakers, worked at Au Bon Climat and founded his own brand in Santa Barbara County in 2007 when he was only 21. He makes Pinot Noir but his gift is for Chardonnay – like this one from the oldest block in a famous vineyard. It’s rich and textured, yet refined and layered, with complex notes of citrus, hazelnuts and minerals.
