2014 Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir
The 2014 Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir marks our 5th consecutive vintage from the original plantings at Sanford & Benedict. Sourced entirely from own-rooted vines planted in 1971, Sanford & Benedict is the progenitor and standard-bearer of the Sta. Rita Hills.
Upon release, the 2014 Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir is open, giving, less overtly tannic, and more forward than the 2013 vintage. Tart cherry, ripe strawberry, and ripe red plums dominate the nose. The palate offers a whisper of blue fruit and a pliant texture.
