Top Premium Pinot Noir tasted 11/13

8. Byron Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir (2011)

« Prev 8 of 8
Average price: $22.99 from 15 stores
Floral with raspberry and cranberry fruits on the nose along with dry, sandy soil tones and some lovely smoky herb and beet root accents. Light on the palate and rather mouth filling if not weighty with aromatic light red fruits that show fine floral and herbal accents. Gaining lovely sweet tea nuance on the backend and finishing with fine grained if slightly dry tannins this offers an attractive blend of freshness, complexity, and a texture that is light but grounded by tannins. Subtle and lovely. This really is fairly tannic in a gentle sort of way. Love the texture. 91pts
