Wine maker notes
A mix of vineyard blocks and several different clones gives this wine great complexity. The wine is brilliant red in color and is bursting with bright red fruits like raspberry and bing cherry with hints of pepper and dried flowers on the nose. The palate delivers silky berry flavors framed nicely by bright acidity and supple tannins. The wine was allowed to age in French Oak barrels (30% new oak) for 10 months where it gained concentration and picked up hints of vanilla and cinnamon.

Technical notes
The 2009 Sanford Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir is a blend from our two estate vineyards: La Rinconada (65%) and the historic Sanford and Benedict Vineyard (35%). Both of these stellar vineyards are in the heart of the Santa Rita Hills. A mix of vineyard blocks and several different clones gives this wine great complexity.

Food pairing
This traditional Pinot Noir pairs well with salmon, quail and duck but is big enough to drink with steaks and roasted beef.
