Byron Nielson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013-Red Wine-World Wine
Byron Nielson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Another terrific wine is the 2013 Pinot Noir Nielson Vineyard, which was completely destemmed and aged 16 months in 40% new French oak. Still showing its oak elevage, with lots of caramelized cherry, black raspberry, sweet oak and spice, it hits the palate with a seamless, silky, gorgeously pure texture that carries plenty of fruit and finishes clean and dry, with notable tannic grip. Give it a year or two in the cellar to integrate its oak and drink bottles through 2021. JD, 92+ points, Robert Parker Wine Advocate 28 Aug, 2015

Tyler ‘Bien Nacido’ Pinot Noir 2015-Red Wine-World Wine
Tyler ‘Bien Nacido’ Pinot Noir 2015

Antonio Galloni/Vinous – The 2015 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard - Old Vines is bold, pungent and super-expressive. It also has huge tannins that are going to need time to soften. The aromatics are beautifully lifted, but this is a virile, potent wine with real muscle behind its powerful, dense personality.

Tyler ‘Bien Nacido’ Chardonnay 2015-White Wine-World Wine
Tyler ‘Bien Nacido’ Chardonnay 2015

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Robert Parker - The 2015 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Block W has white peaches and grapefruit on the nose with touches of lemongrass, shaved almonds and white pepper. Light-bodied with plenty of citrus and stone fruit freshness, it has a zippy backbone and mineral suggestions on the finish.
