2014 Sta. Rita Hills Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir – 91
“This delicate nimble wine id ran from the Santa Rita hills’ original pinot block, planted in 1971, as well as a nearby 20-year-old section of Sanford & Benedict. It’s brisk and vibrant but not angular, with an inviting cashmere-like softness to its raspberry and rose-petal tones”
