2017 Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir
"Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir is scented of cranberry sauce, red licorice, Bing cherries and warm raspberries with accents of bergamot, exotic floral perfume and orange peel. It's medium-bodied and energetic with concentrated spiced fruits lifted by magnetic, juicy acidity, softly framed by grainy tannins and finishing long and perfumed." ~ Wine Advocate
Sanford & Benedict is really the vineyard that started it all in Santa Barbara County. Starting with the 2015 vintage we were fortunate to secure several tons of Pinot Noir grapes from one of the most historically significant vineyards in all of California.
Originally planted in 1971, this mature vineyard yields a wine that is beautifully structured while also retaining the finesse and elegance we love in Pinot Noir.
