2017 Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir
It is in vintages as splendid as 2017 that the privilege off working with the original old vine plantings at Sanford & Benedict radiates throughout the winery. To carefully harness and preserve the grandeur of the 2017 vintage, we gently fermented the Pinot Noir clusters in old wooden tanks (tronconique) for two weeks. The wine was raised in large format, 500L neutral barrels for 10 months. The wine was bottled without filtration.

"Sandhi's 2017 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is beautifully layered and nuanced. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange, mint and white pepper all grace this exquisite Pinot. The 2017 is wonderfully deep, fleshy and nuanced. Moreover, the 2017 is a terrific rendition of S&B." -Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
