and a couple of reviews, cuz y'all love 'em:
Wine Spectator: SANFORD
Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills 2009
Release Price: $43
Issue: Web Only - 2011
Juicy, vivid wild berry, black cherry and raspberry flavors are elegant and refined, with a mix of spice, mineral, dried herb and cedar. Flavors build and gain depth on the finish. Drink now through 2017. 9,744 cases made. –JL
Seems pricy for what you get, which is a good but straightforward Pinot Noir to drink now. It’s dry and elegant, with Pinot’s silky texture, yet one-dimensional in cherry, cola and spice flavors, with a quick finish.
