2018 Tyler Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard Block 5 (750ml)
We just tasted through the Tyler wine lineup earlier this week and we all were thoroughly impressed at how lively and delicious these wines are, particularly the Dierberg Pinot. Produced in a Burgundiam sensibility using top vineyard sites in Santa Maria & Santa Barbara Counties, winemaker Jutin Willet is absolutely honing in on his craft. Justin has been one to watch and he is also partnered with Etienne De Montille on their new project Racines which we offered to great success earlier this year. Tyler is hands down producing some of the finest Pinots and Chardonnays in California today so grab some now.
2018 Tyler Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard Block 5
"The 2018 Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard Block 5 is a total knockout. Dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol and sage give the 2018 so many shades of nuance. A dark, somber expression of Pinot comes through loud and clear. Wild, deep, exotic, the 2018 is truly spectacular. All it needs is more time in bottle." 96 points - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)
