Great ruby color. 14% alcohol leads to a much bigger feel than I would expect from this Pinot. Tastes more like a big cali cab. Read more

Winemaker's notes:The 2008 Sanford Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir is a blend of from our two estate vineyards, La Rinconada, and the historic Sanford and Benedict Vineyard. Both of these stellar vineyards are in the heart of the Santa Rita Hills. A mix of vineyard blocks and several different clones gives this wine great complexity. The wine is brilliant red in color and is bursting with raspberry, cranberry, pepper and sage on the nose. The palate delivers silky berry flavors framed nicely by bright acidity and supple tannins. The wine was allowed to age in French Oak barrels (30% new oak) for 10 months where it gained concentration and picked up hints of vanilla and cinnamon.
