CA$168.07

2017

A combination of three parcels throughout the famous Sanford & Benedict vineyard. Two of the plantings are 10-12 years old, but certainly responsible for the dark, deep core to this wine. The third piece, a small fermentation of the original plantings from 1971, bring the elegance and floral lift. Aged for 18 months in about forty percent new french oak barrels.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2017 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is sensual, silky and impeccable in its balance. There is lovely nuance in the glass to match the wine's mid-weight, restrained personality. Sweet floral notes and purplish fruit linger in the glass. My impression is that the 2017 is still recovering from its relatively recent bottling. We will see.
