95 Points W.E.

There's a grace and purity to this Pinot Noir that make it particularly recommendable. It's so light and silky, it just glides like a butterfly across the palate. But it's extraordinarily rich in wild raspberry and cherry fruit, and the white pepper and baking spices make it savory. Delicious now, but it should prosper over the next eight years, at least.
Sanford La Riconada pinot Noir: "A complex and attractively spicy nose of primarily red pinot and blue berry fruit aromas precedes rich, full-bodied and generous middle weight flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration and a dusty textured on the solidly persistent finish that displays only a modicum of warmth. There is also a touch of herbal character but it's not enough to detract from the overall appeal."

The La Rinconada Pinot Noir is exclusively sourced from the estate vineyard in the esteemed Santa Rita Hills AVA. Dijon clones 667, 777 and 115 growing on the hill east of the winery gives it great intensity and complexity. The wine is deep ruby red in color and is exploding with spicy cherry and earthy raspberry aromas, with a hint of anise and white pepper. The palate delivers flavors of black cherry framed nicely by bright acidity and ripe mouth coating tannins.
