Winemaker Notes

The 45+ year old vines from Sanford & Benedict lend to a very pure and complex pinot noir. From a selection of cuttings from the famed Mt. Eden vineyard, this parcel sits just below our block of chardonnay in very well drained chert/shale soils. These own rooted old vines produce a wine of total class and grace. There is a purity to this fruit every year that I don’t see anywhere else. Beautiful spiced cherry fruit with ginger root and sarsaparilla notes add a spicy component while the overall theme of juicy, freshness and structure shine. The finish is extremely long with wonderful grip and acidity. It is absolutely the most regal wine in our lineup.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is quite youthfully reserved, opening in the glass with delicate notions of strawberries, rhubarb and orange rind. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, supple and texturally expansive, with bright acids and satiny, melting tannins. The finish is pure and tangy. I suspect this particular Pinot Noir is playing its cards quite close to its vest right now, so give it a few years in the cellar to unwind.

Tyler is dedicated to producing wines of delicacy and balance, where structure and nuance are favored above all else. Our focus is exclusively on exceptional vineyard sites throughout the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley within Santa Barbara County, and feel pinot noir and chardonnay are the best mediums to express each vineyard site. Within these two appellations, the unique combination of marine-based soils, transverse ranges and valleys, and cool ocean influence make this a truly wonderful place for growing pinot noir and chardonnay.

We believe wine should be elegant and honest, and must possess aromatic purity.

In order to best convey the individuality of each site, we try to be modern in our thinking and classic in our approach. Great effort had been made not only to seek out vineyards of pedigree, but also to seek out vines with age. We now work with a number of the oldest vineyard blocks in the County and believe this is essential in our quest for both purity and intesity. Furthermore, close collaboration with each of our growers along with focused, minimal handling of fruit and wine allow us the best opportunity to achieve our goals.

We currently produce 12 different bottlings each year from 22 parcels within 7 different vineyard sites. Total production is approximately 2500 cases annually.

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.
