Byron Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir 2006
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley|
Wine EnthusiastVery rich, very complicated, a young, dense, grapey wine that clearly needs time to come around. Dry and balanced in acids and tannins, it shows brilliantly ripe blackberry, black cherry and cola flavors, with an earthy note the Brits used to call beetroot. Give it until after 2009 to begin to mellow.
