Tasting Notes

The most pure, focused and crystalline of the Santa Barbara releases, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard offers stunning aromas and flavors of rose petals, spring flowers and violets to go with a core of darker berry fruit. Picking up additional minerality with time in the glass, it's medium-bodied, ultra-pure and focused, yet still has beautiful fruit and a seamless texture that keeps it fun to drink. It's a great Pinot Noir. Completely destemmed and aged 18 months in 25% new French oak, it's another effort from this team that will have over a decade of longevity.
