2017 Sandhi Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
Sourced predominantly from the Domaine de la Côte estate vineyards at the western edge of the appellation, the cépage is buttressed by fruit from the famed old vines at the Sanford & Benedict vineyard.
"Pale to medium ruby, the nose slowly opens to pretty layers of spice and savory fruit, with aromas of rose petal, sliced blueberries, warm Bing cherries, wild blackberries, peppered salami, amaro, and raspberry jam. Light to medium-bodied, the palate gives up lots of spices and savory notes with ripe, grainy tannins and seamless acidity, finishing long and nuanced."
