Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Great Pinot for Cabernet lovers, at only
13.8 ABV. Can’t think of another $30.00 pinot I’d choose over this

Winemaker's Notes: "These grapes were harvested on August 19th and September 3rd at an average of 23.0 brix. The grapes underwent a four-day cold-soak with 1-3 punch downs by hand daily. Once dry, the wine was pressed and put into French oak barrels (15% new) where it stayed for 15 months before being racked and bottled unfiltered in February of 2018."

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.

La Rinconada Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Pretty great although I’m liking the Sanford and Benedict better. Fairly nuanced with red fruit on the front but a little vanilla and herbs d’ Provence on the finish. — 3 months ago
