Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir

2014 vintage. From the oldest part of the historical Sanford § Benedict vineyard, planted in 1971. Bright transparent ruby. Sour cherries, strawberries, fresh herbs and a mineral touch in the nose. Elegant and well-balanced with very pure Pinot Noir fruit and a subtle spiciness. Perfectly integrated oak and nice depth. Long mineral finish. Another winner from ABC. 48 euro. — a month ago

Sanford & Benedict

Pinot Noir 1981

Dark blue fruit. Very pure with lovely savory fruit with a tangy sour cherry note. A bit Nuits Saint George-like. Still great life to this, with great balance. A treat — 2 months ago

The Hilt

Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2014

Lovely dark berries, leather, and violets on the nose. Soft and generous on the palate with somewhat sappy dark fruit and 13.5% alcohol. Sourced from multiple Santa Rita Hills vineyards including Sanford & Benedict, Radian, Bentrock, and Bien Nacido, the fruit is completely destemned and aged in 30% new French oak. — 11 days ago

La Rinconada Vineyard Pinot Noir 2005

Huge nose - just wonderful - candied cherries and mulling spices , some brandied cherries, such a sweet note present. Allspice as tertiary with... macerated chestnuts! Great mouthfeel with a soft attack and a strengthening mid, ripe and crunchy, big fruit, solid tannins that are well (but not completely!) integrated. Alcohol seems high. Finish lasts a while. An excellent example 13 years on. — 2 months ago
