Los Alamos Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Third of five... and second favorite of the evening. Lots of deep fruits that were well-balanced with earthy spices and flavors. Beautiful complement to grilled lamb and eggplant. — 4 months ago

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2016

Cool coastal winds have really done well for Santa Barbara Pinots. Chanin is not your usual California fruit bomb. It starts with dried currant, give you a touch of butter scotch for a brief moment and then hits you at the end with a zippy pleasantly bitter bergamot note. — 6 months ago

Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Opened yesterday; on the counter overnight. On the nose: loads of loads of red fruit, toasty sandalwood, a touch of hi-toned va, and spices. On the palate: excellent hi-toned acidity, good density, wild strawberry, sour plum, some tannic bitterness..transitioning into finely grained tannins. Better than my last btl. — 5 months ago

I’ve been meaning to try this producer for some time now. I’ve heard & read good things about their work. So when I saw this on “Last Bottle” for $35, I picked a few up. It didn’t disappoint.

The one thing about the Santa Rita Hills region that I struggle with is a number of their Pinot Noirs, for me, are over extracted. That is not the case here.

The fruits were generally mid red. Some blackberries, strawberries, dark cherries, cherries, nice hues of blueberries, pomegranate & cranberries. Gentle wood use, softly layered baking spices, excellent acidity & nicely polished even finish.

Drinks well now but, will hold my other two bottles 2-3 years for further integration & even something a little better.

Almost got this. Hesitated for your same overextracted comment. This one sounds good.
