2020 Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir
97 points Wine Advocate
It is a classic for a reason. The 2020 Pinot Noir from Sanford & Benedict is a gorgeous wine. Plenty of bright red fruits and floral notes with classic saline undertones of the Sta. Rita Hills. The palate is juicy and focused with delicate, gentle tannin, and the finish is lifted and lengthy. 2020 was such a stunning vintage here in the Sta. Rita Hills with the perfect balance of ripeness and freshness.
"The 2020 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is an undeniably attractive wine. Bright floral and savory accents lift a core of red/purplish fruit, with hints of mint, spice and rose petal that emerge over time." -Antonio Galloni, Vinous June 2022
