In August 2014, I was introduced to Byron when at the Wine Blogger’s Conference in Santa Barbara. They’re not generally available up here in Canada, so when I found this one, I snatched it up knowing it would be a delicious drink.
Translucent garnet, it has aromas of raspberry juice, fresh cedar, and dried fern.
The palate is dry with mouth watering acidity, slender tannins and flavours of more raspberry with pomegranate and a little black licorice.
The palate delivers more than the nose promises, but a long finish augments this elegant WSET Very Good wine.
One thing though – what is with their website? No information exists about their wines or philosophy and all one can do is sign up for a newsletter. But you can only do that if you’re American because to qualify, you must enter a state. Really? How provincial.
