The Details

In a Nutshell

Lifted and pure Pinot Noir...this is juicy stuff. Wild strawberry fruit mingles with gamey notes and 16 months in French oak softens out the wine beautifully.

Tasting Notes

Open with a floral and mineral character typical of Santa Barbara. Classically varietal with wild strawberry fruit, firm bright acidity and a fresh gentle mineral finish.

Production Notes

A very cool winter and spring led to a harvest with small clusters and small berries with flavours of dark berry, cherry, hints of floral and mineral. The wines spends 16 months in French Oak, 3% of which was new.

Producer - Byron Vineyards

In 1984 when Ken Brown founded Byron, his plan seemed simple : produce spectacular Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Santa Barbara County. In 2003, Jonathan Nagy assumed winemaking duties. His small-lot, hands-on winemaking techniques have helped contribute to Byron’s success. Intensive grape sorting, native yeast fermentations, and lot separation from harvest through winemaking with more than 170 separate batches of Pinot Noir alone – have helped create wines that combine the finesse of Burgundy and the power of California.
