Byron 2006 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley)

Very 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.
