2012 Sandhi Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir from one of the oldest plantings in the Santa Rita Hills (1971). Youthful, lovely fruit purity and freshness, highlighting the vineyards cool micro climate. This wine speaks the language of the vineyard. Old world wine style made in the New World. This will age gracefully, but already delicious! Only 600 x 6-Packs produced, partnership between Charles Banks (Ex-Screaming Eagle and Sommelier Rajat Parr, winemaker Sashi Moorman) available in Thailand through wine garage.

2012 vintage. Beautiful nose smells of cherry blossom, and spice box, Volnay like. The mid palate is strikingly fresh, and pure offering tart cherry, candied orange peel, and cranberry. The wine has power and finesse in perfect unison. The fruit tones are very fine tune on the long finish. This is the art of balance.

Cherry fruit, beautiful herbal peppery finish in an elegant old world style Pinot.

Old world style from California central coast. The nose is redolent of Luxardo cherries and Antica Formula vermouth. On the palate, there is a battle between fruit and earth; deep, earthy forest flavors are offset by bright, tart spring cherries. Coastal botanicals play against wild fruit. Better than expected.

2016/2/14 Checking in on 2012 progress! It's still very tight and feisty at first but the terrior and fruits and tea flavors showed up after a bit. Very primary.
