5 Barrel 96 Point Rated Pinot

Justin Wilett started out as an assistant winemaker and worked his way up owning his own label, which he created in 2005 producing 190 cases.  His meticulous attention to detail has elevated him to “Must Have” status among many Chardonnay and Pinot Noir lovers.  Working with some of the best vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Barbara county, Justin has wowed many (including me) with his great craft.   His latest releases all garnered big press (95 and 96 point ratings) and I’d say they could have been 96 and 97s but who am I to say.

Galloni 96 Points 2013 Tyler La Rinconada: “A sensational wine by any measure, the 2013 Pinot Noir La Rinconada Vineyard is simply stunning. Explosive and structured, the 2013 takes hold of all the senses with waves of dark red and bluish fruit, lavender, cloves and violets that seem to never stop. Justin Willett hit it out of the park in his first vintage from La Rinconada. The 2013 is a real knock-out, and I don’t say that lightly.”

Galloni 95 Points Tyler Bien Nacido N BLOCK: “The 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard – N Block is another wine full of nuance. Here, too, there is plenty of exoticism and nuance, especially in the aromatics. Scents of dried flowers, sage and rosemary meld into a deep, powerful core of fruit. The N Block has everything going on. Explosive, energetic and beautifully perfumed, the 2013 will provide thrilling drinking for those lucky enough to find it. Unfortunately there are just three barrels of this magical Pinot from Tyler.”

Parker 95 Tyler Bien Nacido N BLOCK: “Coming from winemaker Justin Willett’s favorite block in the Bien Nacido vineyard, the 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido N Blockhas more mid-palate depth and fruit than the old vines release and exhibits killer notes of rose petals, violets, subtle oak and sweet raspberry and black raspberry fruit. Beautifully rounded and textured on the palate, yet still in the house style, give this medium-bodied, focused and nicely structured Pinot 2-3 years and enjoy bottles through 2025.
