About

93

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is bold, rich and juicy. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, leather and dark spice are front and center. The use of fully destemmed fruit and newer vineyards seems to yield a distinctly juicy, fruit-driven style of S&B Pinot that stands in contrast to the more reserved version Gavin Chanin makes under his own label."

Product Description:

"Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is one of the oldest vineyards in Santa Barbara County (planted in 1972), located in the famed Sta. Rita Hills. The grapes were harvested on August 22nd, 25th and 28th. At the winery, the grapes were destemmed and underwent a five-day cold-soak prior to fermentation. The wine was then gently pressed and put into French oak barrels where it stayed for 18 months before being bottled in January 2016." -Winery
