Winemaker's Notes

The Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir comes from the original vines Richard Sanford planted in 1971. These 32 year old vines are the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the Santa Ynez Valley. Primarily from the Mt. Eden selection, this wine is always highly aromatic and classically Burgundian. This wine is fermented in 100% new French Oak for 18 months and is not filtered. This is a pedigreed wine that ages well.

Wonderful aromas of blackberry, black cherry, mineral, lavender and spice, with a rich core of fruit flavors that are plush yet structured, with lively acidity and firm, ripe tannins. Drink now through 2007.
