Sanford 2004 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

Cellar Selection

Young, fairly tough in tannins, and with a sappy, grapy taste, this is a wine that badly needs time in the bottle, as do most S&B Pinots. It shows primary fruit flavors of cherries and blackberries, offset by crisp acidity despite full malolactic fermentation. Should begin to come into its own by 2008, improving through 2012 and holding for years afterward.
