Winemaker Notes

On the nose, black cherry and raspberry dominate with a touch of black plum, cigar box and baking spices. Intense dark fruit flavors of black cherry, black raspberry and red plum backed by fennel, sage and vanilla.

Wine Enthusiast
Intensely dark and focused, this bottling from Santa Barbara County's historic vineyard is unrivaled in intensity, showing mulberry, elderberry, crushed rock, roast beef and a hint of sagebrush. Full but not sweet boysenberry flavors come through on the palate, balanced by dusty earth, wet stone and more chaparral spice notes.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir offers up notions of crushed black raspberries and black cherries with touches of anise, lavender and charcoal. Medium-bodied and elegantly played in the mouth, the tightly knit fruit is well-supported by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and earthy.
Rating: 92+

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard shines in the lineup and has a pretty, fresh style in its strawberry, mint and floral aromatics. These give way to a fresh, elegant, stylish Pinot Noir that has a Burgundian-like purity and focus. It should keep for a decade.

Sta. Rita Hills Wine

Santa Barbara, California

A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on.

The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
