Byron Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley|
Julia’s Vineyard is home to Santa Barbara’s oldest producing Pinot Noir vines planted in the 1970s. The fruit for this wine was selected from two low vigor, “old vine” rows planted to the Pommard clone 4. During fermentation, a combination of punchdowns and pump-overs is used to circulate the skins and juice, ensuring maximum extraction. The core is infused with Chinese five spice and toast with a dark berry and cherry finish.
