Tyler Heck winemaker for John Tyler Wines doesn't release his Pinot Noir until he feels it's ready, after over 3 and a half years conditioning in the bottle after aging in new French oak. It delivers a voluptuous front, mid-mouth and back-end flavor that got my mind turning with ways to describe it. In a year that has seen the release of Grand Cru Burgundies that fetch prices around $500, Pinot lovers have no choice but to seek out better values. At $42 a bottle, John Tyler is a smart choice over the collector's items from France. If this went up blind against the 2005 Burgundies in a modern day Judgment of Paris, my money is on fourth-generation winemaker Tyler Heck.
