Gift Set Tasting Notes

Enjoy this Premium Gift Set featuring three Byington favorites from award winning vineyards. These wines represent peak performance by Winemaker, Andrew Brenkwitz, who selected each from Reserve Blocks and vineyards, and handcrafted them with extraordinary care. We are excited to present this offering, and invite you to enjoy our pure, natural, high elevations wines!

2014 Chardonnay Reserve, Tin Cross Vineyard

This Alexander Valley Chardonnay is harvested from our Reserve Block in a truly prime location. It is golden in color with peach, pear, and exotic fruit dominant aromas, and decorated with the creamy vanilla scent from 12 months maturation in French and Hungarian oak barrels. The crisp and fresh finish makes this wine perfect with seafood and light appetizers.

2014 Pinot Noir, Byington Block 4

This Pinot Noir has been reserved from the rest of the Estate Vineyard fruit due to its distinct individual character and the westward facing location of Block 4. The terroir creates fruit that is earthy and robust and adds elegance. The wine has dark cherry fruit on the nose with a lingering finish on the palate. Fermentation and maturation in 100% French oak for 14 months enhanced its flavor and complexity. Enjoy now or age 4 to 6 years.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Reichel Vineyard

Alexander Valley in Sonoma has long been recognized for producing rich full-flavored Cabernet Sauvignon. The renowned Reichel Vineyard, located in the hills high above the valley floor, produces wine of even greater depth and character. This wine shows great ripeness and extract with full flavors and ample tannin for long term aging. Cellar this wine for 6-10 years for added flavor and complexity.
