Byron 2008 Nielson Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley)

Editors' Choice

Silky and velvety soft in the mouth, coating the palate with extraordinary raspberry and cherry flavors, enriched with sweet oak, and spiced with cloves, cinnamon and white pepper. There are even notes of cocoa and orange zest. Yet brisk acidity makes it all clean and vibrant. It's hard to imagine a California Pinot Noir tasting better than this—and what a fantastic bargain. Drink now–2014.
