Nielson By Byron 2017 Pinot Noir is silky, fruity and fragrant with earthy violets, bergamot, dried tobacco leaf and ripe blackberry aromas on the nose, vibrant with layers of dark fruit, blueberry, rhubarb, earthy, spicy and smoky on the palate. Tannins are pleasantly grippy. Since the early 1980s Santa Barbara County has been recognized as one of California’s great wine regions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The cooler, mild climate and sandy soils are a perfect match for these varietals. Pour with grilled lamb chops or kebabs.

Pinot Noir food pairings: seared duck breast, roast pork loin, Cornish game hen, beef bourguignon.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
