Tyler Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills 2021
Few of California’s young winemakers possess the regional mastery that is illustrated by the work of Tyler's Justin Willett, a San Barbara local. Justin began Tyler in 2005 with eight barrels tucked away in the corner of Arcadian Winery, where he honed his approach to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as assistant winemaker. This Pinot Noir bursts from the glass with a pure and expressive bouquet of red plums, raspberries, rose hips and spice.
WA93: The 2021 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills has a medium ruby-purple color and scents of cranberry, raspberry and blueberry with pure wafts of tea leaves and violet. The light-bodied palate is delicate, bright and chalky with a core of perfumed fruit and an ethereal, lifted finish.
