Byron Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley Sierra Madre Vineyard 2010
Not yet reviewed; PinotFile said this about the 2009 vintage: [$25 list] 14.9% alc... Aged 10 months in 25% new French oak barrels. Sourced from the estate Nielson Vineyard planted in 1964. Deeply colored. Nicely scented with aromas of black raspberry tart, black cherries, smoky oak and rose petals. Sweet and rich with a powerful core of dark red stone fruits and berries and underpinnings of earth, anise and grilled meat. The tannins are supple and the wine’s richness and velvety mouthfeel courtesy of the alcohol will find fans... Good.

A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2010 Byron Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 750ml
Byron has been producing stellar Pinot Noirs since the late 80’s from their vineyards in the Central Coast. This is their Santa Barbara Pinot made from carefully selected clones. The climate here is ideal for Pinot as the cooling ocean breezes flow up through the valley and temper the very warm natural conditions. This 2010 is their most popular wine for a very good reason. It shows ripe strawberry, cherry and vanilla nuances on supple tannins with a lively, long finish.
