I’m tasting this alongside old vines Gevrey Chambertin and a Côtes de Nuits Villages from a great winemaker and this rocks. Juicier and sooo balanced! Violets and cherries abound. Could be our #SB expensive house wine for when people in Spain ask what SB wines are like? Good ass #pinot #pinotnoir #sbcounty #santabarbarapinot #santabarbaracounty

Sweet cherries and blueberries. Brett, vanilla, and sweet spices. Finishes sweet. Moderate acidity, tannins, and body. Didn’t quite get the hype... perhaps next time a better bottle...

From memory, I was very impressed with this. Lots of complexity on the nose and palate. Displays grainy, textured tannins with deftly balanced acidity. Finishes with rose hip, cinnamon and cola. Ravishing...

This Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir smells & tastes like Sta. Rita Hills. It brings me back to my visits to the area. @Rajat Parr has done a wonderful job!!!

Ruby cherries, spices, and a touch of that licorice salinity. Slint hint of oak.

Pepperoni Pizza w/Pancetta and Pinot. This is a superb bottle from Rajat Parr in Sta. Rita Hills, bright fruit with minerality from the soil.
