2014 Nielson by Byron Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., pH 3.59, TA 0.50, $19. Sourced from Sta. Rita Hills, Los Alamos and Santa Maria Valley appellations. Aged 12 months in French oak barrels, 5% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Pleasant aromas of wood-kissed cherries lead to an easy drinking, cherry-flavored wine with accents of black tea, a flowery infusion and oak. Nothing serious or contemplative, but a solid everyday wine with nicely integrated tannins and acidity. Score: 87. Reviewed April 2, 2016
