Byron Nielson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley|
Wine Review OnlineThis is among the best under-$20 Pinot made anywhere in the world. By “best,” I most certainly don’t mean “biggest,” but rather most delicate, integrated and pure. If I want a bigger wine, I’m perfectly capable of ordering Syrah or Cabernet. If I’m after Pinot, it is because I want a wine that won’t fight with my fish or chicken. This fits the bill perfectly, showing light-medium body, appropriately pale color, significant (but not overbearing) aroma and flavor, and a finish that is fairly long and very fresh… without any awkward sweetness or hint of cheap oak-chip tricks. Delicious, and a triumph at this price.
