Vinous Tyler Winery, 2014 Tyler Pinot Noir La Rinconada
"The 2014 Pinot Noir La Rinconada Vineyard presents a super-classic sense of Sta. Rita Hills exuberance, but tempered by Justin Willet's hand. Racy and forward in its fruit profile, the 2014 wraps around the palate with striking textural depth, yet there is plenty of structure to back things up. This powerful, deep Pinot could use another few years in bottle. This is the most overt and flamboyant of the Tyler Pinots." –Sep-16
Wine Advocate Tyler Winery, 2014 Tyler Pinot Noir La Rinconada
"The darkest colored in the lineup, with notions of cassis, smoked earth, violets and forest floor, the 2014 Pinot Noir la Rinconada is medium-bodied, nicely concentrated and fresh, with a vibrant, rich, textured, yet structured vibe. It's a beautiful wine that Burgheads should love."
De-stemmed to 2-5 ton open top fermenters. Native fermentation begins after 4-5 days. Gently
extracted using both punch down and pump-overs. Pressed to tank once dry, and quickly settled
before going down to half new barrels. On the lees for 12-14 months, racked and blended, then back down to barrel for an other 3-4 months before bottling.
