2016 tyler, pinot noir dierberg block five, santa maria valley
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard Block Five is lovely, offering up complex aromas of crushed berries, citrus rind, potpourri and loamy soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and sappy, with a juicy core of delicate dark fruit and a tangy, fragrant finish. It's one of the more youthfully expressive wines in the range, but it has deceptive substance too.
