Winemaker Notes

The 2007 La Rinconada Pinot Noir is exclusively sourced from our estate vineyard in the esteemed Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Dijon clones 667, 777 and 114 planted on a well drained west facing slope, give great intensity and complexity. The wine is deep ruby red in color and is exploding with bing cherry and black raspberry aromas, with a hint of anise and cola. The palate delivers flavors of plum and cherry framed nicely by bright acidity and ripe mouth coating tannins.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Tight, focused, complex and layered, this is Burgundian in its structure, with full-bodied plum, black cherry, wild berry, floral and spicy, peppery scents that are delivered on a beam of acidity. Drink now through 2016.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Tasted in early Spring, this Pinot was dark, jammy and resistant, as if it were shyly hiding its pleasures beneath a cloak of tannin and acidity. It needs time to express its core of black cherries, anise and sandalwood. Give it until mid-2010, and it should develop through 2014.

Sanford Winery Sanford Winery Winery Image
In Santa Barbara wine country, it all started with Sanford Winery. Recognizing a magical combination of climate and soil conditions, the Sanford & Benedict vineyard was plated in 1971, and the resulting wines are now the benchmark of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Pinot Noir has thrived in the Sta. Rita Hills ever since, and ranks among the best and most distinctive in the world. Sanford's estate vineyards - Rancho La Rinconada and Sanford & Benedict - lie within the 100 square mile AVA, and they rely exclusively on these vineyards for their luscious, signature Pinot Noir. The area owes its magic to an unusual east-west mountain valley that runs from the vineyards to the Pacific Ocean; ideal for cool-climate varietals.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.
