2018 Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir:
Vineyards: Sanford & Benedict, La Rinconada
Region: Sta Rita Hills AVA, Santa Barbara County, CA
Bottle Size: 750ml
This stunning Pinot Noir comes from two of the most famous Pinot Noir vineyards in the New World: Sanford&Benedict and La Rinconanda, both from the Sta Rita Hills. This is easily one of the best Pinots we have made showing the light, ethereal quality of this variety with a very Burgundian fruit profile. There is a level of nuance and detail here that makes Pinot Noir such a revered variety. The wine has a great, mineral, fluid mouthfeel and crisp, refreshing tannin.
