Tasting Set Includes:
- Sanford Winery Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
This Pinot Noir is dark ruby in color and is very spice driven on the nose with cloves, lavender, wild mushrooms, and forest floor. The palate delivers spice and savory, dark fruits, espresso, and leather with balanced acid and suave tannin structure, which carries the lovely finish. The wine was aged in French Oak barrels (25% new oak) for 11 months where it gained complexity and elegance.
- Sanford Winery Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay
Enticing aromas of grilled peach, Meyer lemon, and toasted hazelnuts greet the nose. The bright fruit and honeycomb palate is nicely framed by crisp acidity and rich texture which carries to a long, clean finish. By gently whole cluster pressing and barrel fermenting in French Oak, this Chardonnay has lovely texture to complement the bright palate. The vibrant acidity gives the wine freshness and makes a nice pairing with seafood, poultry, and pasta with lighter sauces.
