2014 Sandhi La Côte Pinot Noir
Sourced from our organically farmed Domaine de la Côte estate, the La Côte Pinot Noir comes from a 9-acre vineyard at the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills. Located almost 3 miles west of the other vineyard sites, La Côte points to the future of our appellation.
In the glass the wine is noticeably lighter in color than the other bottlings, but doubly as aromatic. Perhaps the first thing one smells is just how much closer to the Pacific Ocean La Côte sits. The bright saline lift of the aromatics evokes vivacity and energy. The wine is lively on the palate and its bright red fruits integrate playfully with polished tannins. The finish, augmented by beautiful acidity, is interminable.
