Winemaker Notes

Nowhere is the opulence of the 2014 vintage more notable than at Mt. Carmel. This auspicious south-facing vineyard sits mid-slope, below Rita’s Crown and above Sea Smoke. Farmed organically by famed viticulturist Ruben Solorzano, the fruit from Mt. Carmel is always arrives at the winery in pristine condition.

The 2014 Mt. Carmel Pinot Noir is richly perfumed with black cherry, strawberry compote, and a hint of sandalwood. Sandhi's most structured wine of the vintage, its firm tannins linger, making this the optimal pairing for hearty fare.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Pinot Noir Mt Caramel from Sandhi displays pretty aromas of red berries, crushed rock, dried herbs and a subtle framing of new oak. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, tensile and mineral, with a deep core of bright fruit. This has the structure to improve with several years in the bottle and drink well for the following decade.

Sandhi, California
Sandhi Winery Image
Sandhi is a small production California winery focusing on select vineyards from the Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County and was founded in 2010 by Rajat Parr, the wine director for Michael Mina Restaurants, Charles Banks, the former owner of Jonata and Screaming Eagle, and esteemed winemaker, Sashi Moorman.

Sandhi represents a union essential to the production of wine: the collaboration between man, earth, and vine. The willing participation of all three elements is necessary to make great wine, and the winegrower must make this collaboration rich and nourishing for all involved. An understanding of these joint efforts informs Sandhi’s exploration of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines throughout the Santa Barbara County terroir.

The individual vineyards from which these grapes originate–some legendary, some new–have been exhaustively vetted for character, personality, and balance. Employing the wisdom and talents of people who know the vineyards, Sandhi is dedicated to making wines of finesse, minerality, acidity, structure and balance. Wine achieves power and beauty through the seamless integration of these qualities, and this is the inspiration for Sandhi. Wines exhibiting extreme ripeness, alcohol, oak, and other discordant exaggerations cannot truly express a specific vineyards terroir.

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.
