Tonight I am having the 2013 Byron Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County. Upon first opening I get some real good fruit that makes me want to jump right into tasting. On the nose I get chery, red raspberry, cranberry, clove, caramel, and wet leaves. On the palate the fruit from the nose continues right on through. I get tart cherries, raspberries, and cranberries. There is a good fresh smooth mouthfeel with medium + acidity and Medium tannins. I really like the good long finish this wine provides. I purchased this for $ 17.99 that I feel is a good QPR.

Let it breathe. Nice florals but kind of tart. Nothing super fancy- still great for the airport!

Good cranberry fruit, to light raspberry. A bit closed and short today, but well placed tannins suggest room for improvement on another occasion.
