Producer notes: "We began working with fruit from the old vines (50 years) at Sanford & Benedict in 2018, paying by the acre for our sections to ensure organic farming. The grapes have that old vine magic, and we decided to make a single vineyard wine from this terrific terroir. The 2020 is a fantastic representation of that site. The wine is cool, sappy, and exuberant, with fresh red fruits, a gloriously pure texture and some real intensity that lingers on the palate. The wine was aged on its lees for 16 months in French oak barrels (25% new) and bottled without fining nor filtration. Extremely Limited. Only 325 cases produced."

Not yet reviewed; 2019 vintage rated 96 points by Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2019 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard was 80% destemmed, which is a lot of stems by this estate’s standards, and spent 16 months in 40% new barrels. It’s another exotic, complex, incredibly satisfying Pinot Noir in the lineup that offers ripe red and black fruits, black tea, orange blossom, and spice-laced aromas and flavors. I love its texture, and it has terrific mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and a great, great finish."
