Tasting Notes

Bright, limpid, delightfully blushing Pinot Noir, this is juicy seductive stuff, approachable with a floral/mineral character typical of Santa Barbara. Classically varietal with wild strawbery fruit and traces of star anise - lovely!

Producer details

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.

In the vineyard

The 2012 vintage included a very cool winter and spring. These conditions led to a harvest with small clusters and small berries with flavours of dark berry, cherry, hints of floral and mineral.

In the winery

10 months in French Oak, 20% of which was new.

Food Recommendations

Lamb or duck breast cooked pink, roasted duck with a cherry or redcurrant sauce.
