Tasting notes

A full-bodied, vibrant, and succulent wine, the 2015 Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir opens with notes of ripe red fruits, sous bois, and spice. The tannins are fine and a touch chewy in their youth. There is tremendous concentration and length for such a young wine.

Production

Viticulture

Sourced from the original, own-rooted, Mt. Eden selection planted in 1971, these vines represent the first plantings in the region and predate the formation of the appellation by 26 years. This
gentle, north-facing site has silex and clay-loam top soils with threads of limestone stratifying the sub soil.
