Sanford La Rinconada Vineyard Pinot Noir 2001
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara|
Elegantly styled, with rich, creamy, yet understated, earthy berry, mineral, anise and wild berry flavors that turn delicate on the finish. Has enough tannin and depth to cellar short-term. Drink now through 2007.
An interesting Pinot, although itâ€™s young, in terms of both vine and bottle age. Seems like a work in progress, with its lush, ripe black cherry flavors and wonderfully crisp acidity. Well oaked, too. But the tannins are tough and astringent.
