Sanford Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
2016 was a warm dry year, with low yields resulting in concentrated, well-structured and balanced wines. Color: Bright ruby red. Aroma: Bursting with earthy raspberry and orange peel, along with savory notes of anise and white pepper. Taste: The palate delivers dense dusty, berry flavors with lively acid and tannin structure, which carries on with a long and lovely finish.
Aromas of dried cranberry, hibiscus, rooibos tea, mace and grated ginger combine on the nose of this appellation blend. Intense flavors of elderflower and violet make for an elegantly vibrant palate, which is framed by intense black-raspberry fruit.
