Sandhi 2012 Pinot Noir, STA. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, CA
Wine Advocate rating: 91..."The 2012 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is a pretty, perfumed and elegant effort that’s mostly from the Bent Rock vineyard. Rose petal, sweet spice, red berries and hints of flowers emerge from this lightly textured, medium-bodied effort, and it’s already hard to resist. Drink it over the coming 2-3 years. Looking at the Pinot Noirs, all of the 2012s shows beautiful purity and integrated acidity, with a big slant toward the lighter textured, elegant end of the spectrum."
