2014 Byron Nielson Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

13.7% alc., 1,984 cases, $45. Clones 114, 667, Pommard and W├Ądenswil 2A. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Boisterous aromas of dark red cherry and berry with a compliment of oak. Mid weight plus core of black cherry and boysenberry fruit flavors in a rather simple but pleasurable style. The mid palate has noticeable intent, the tannins are nicely balanced, there is an noticeable oak thread plying the background, and the finish shows some vigor. Score: 90. Reviewed December 13, 2016
