Byron Pinot Noir

Byron 2011 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir ($19)

Live large for less than $20! Pour some Byron Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir ($19) the next time you gather with friends. Delicate notes of flowers and spice frame the core of plums and dark berries, showing both power and finesse. When temperatures climb, put a chill on the bottle to sustain the wine’s vibrant side.

Lighter in body than many reds, Pinot Noir is a great choice for summer-fresh ways with meats. See below for a steak-centered menu to serve it with.
