Combines delicate, ripe, up-front plum and black cherry fruit with firmer tannins and mineral and cedary oak touches. Full-bodied, complex and focused, ending with a mix of pastel flavors. Drink now through 2015. 1,925 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2008 Saintsbury Pinot Noir Stanly Ranch 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

By committing to pursuing high quality California Pinot Noir back in the late 1970's, Saintsbury founders Dick Ward and David Graves put themselves in the forefront of a movement that would eventually catapult California wines, Carneros Pinot Noir and Saintsbury onto the world wine stage. According to the Wine Spectator's Matt Kramer, Saintsbury not only "single-handedly demolished the old assertion that California cannot create Pinot Noirs of a Burgundian standard of delicacy and finesse, but also "no winery has been more methodical in its investigation and pursuit of newly available Pinot Noir clones than Saintsbury. The stellar range of Saintsbury Pinot Noirs and unfiltered Chardonnays have never performed better than today. Hats off to Dick and Dave who continue to lead the way with innovation and inspiration.
