2018 Sanford & Benedict "1971" Pinot Noir
Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of Pinot Noir by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. In vintage 2015 we began to work with Pinot Noir from one of the most historically significant vineyard in all of California, the iconic Sanford & Benedict.
Our "1971" bottling is made from grapes sourced exclusively from the original block of Pinot Noir planted in that year. These old vines have small yields that deliver exquisite flavor and complexity, graceful texture, and balance. It is an honor to have access to these grapes; we hope you love this wine as much as we do.
