Nielson by Byron 2013 Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley
Byron has been producing stellar Pinot Noirs since the late 80s from their Nielson Vineyard located in the eastern foothills of the Santa Maria Valley. Planted in 1964 this vineyard lies just south of the famous Bien Nacido Vineyard and has mature vines with carefully selected clones of Pinot Noir. 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 2013 is a standout for the excellent climatic conditions the vintage brought. Aged 16 months in French oak. The Wine Advocate scored this 92+ saying "Another terrific wine is the 2013 Pinot Noir Nielson Vineyard, which was completely destemmed and aged 16 months in 40% new French oak. Still showing its oak elevage, with lots of caramelized cherry, black raspberry, sweet oak and spice, it hits the palate with a seamless, silky, gorgeously pure texture that carries plenty of fruit and finishes clean and dry, with notable tannic grip. Give it a year or two in the cellar to integrate its oak and drink bottles through 2021."

So Good!
Such a lovely, smooth texture on this Pinot I could drink for days. Notes of raspberry. And a great value too!
