Sanford 2015 Founders Vines Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

Editors' Choice

From the original own-rooted vines planted by Richard Sanford and Michael Benedict in the early 1970s, this bottling offers earthy aromas of dried oyster mushrooms in paper bags, lanolin, smoke and smashed raspberry. The damp earth elements wrap the palate as well, where dried berries and leather make for a very Old World expression that grows more fascinating with each sip. Matt Kettmann
