Sanford Pinot Noir La Rinconada Vineyard 2015

Pinot Noir | Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County,  California
The 2015 La Rinconada Pinot Noir is selected from individual barrels of the best blocks from this estate vineyard in the esteemed Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This bottling is deep red in color and is bursting with earthy cherry, black raspberry and anise aromas. The silky palate delivers flavors of juicy red fruits framed nicely by bright acidity and a lingering finish. The wine was allowed to age in French Oak barrels for 14 months where it gained concentration and a luxurious velvety texture. While enjoyable now, this wine has the balance and concentration to age beautifully for the next 10 to 12 years.
