2018 Tyler Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard Block 5 Santa Maria Valley

This continues to please. Not great but so drinkable. Bright red, dark at the core, translucent at the rim. Soft cherry aromas. Crisp, cherry/strawberry fruit, spicy. Bit brighter with air and food. Soft tannins, nice acidity, good balance. Finishes dark fruited, spicy, long. Very nice. Drink early I think, next 4 to 5 years. "B+"
