Allow Vintage Substitution(?) 

Native primary and secondary fermentation, aging in mostly neutral French oak, one racking (to assemble the blend), no fining. The wine is a little more stout than the 2011, and a little shyer in the aromas at this stage. The usual black fruits and spice are there, and decanting or giving it a little air before drinking helps open up the aromas.

Byron Kosuge, winemaker at Saintsbury for 20 years, makes this blockbuster label of his own. Selecting vineyards for their unique terroir, Byron’s cornerstone is "The Shop," an expressive Pinot dedicated to the people who tend the grapes. It is joined by small productions sourced from top vineyards, including Hirsch, Hudson, Soberanes and his monopole vineyard in Carneros. All exquisite, these wines capture Byron's sense of dedication, modesty and elegance.
