Byron Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2010

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Aromas driven by cedar and spice. Red flowers, cinnamon stick, ripe red berry fruit driven by strawberry. Sleek palate with dried flowers including rose petals. Finely grained tannin with dark berry fruit which leans a tad sour. Wild red and black raspberry with dried herbal hints and a nice mineral tone. Best with food. Good acidity. 87 pts.
