Pale ruby in the glass, this expressive Pinot Noir opens with lively raspberry, red currant, and crunchy cranberry that lead into aromas of candied violets and warm spices. Bright and focused acidity followed by elegant tannins make for a wine that is fresh, savory, and textured. Enjoy now through 2026.

While sourcing for our vineyard designate Pinot Noirs, we seek out sites along the central coast that are very different from our estate and we collaborate with growers that are aligned on the same meticulous farming practices as our own. Sanford & Benedict was the first vineyard planted in what became the renowned, cool-climate Sta. Rita Hills appellation and we are ecstatic to feature this, bright and elegant bottling of Pinot Noir.
