2018 Sandhi Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1476018 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is a glorious wine. A burst of sweet red/purplish fruit makes a strong opening statement that reverberates off layers of savory and floral intensity. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2018 packs a serious punch. Readers who want to get a sense of the year would do well to start here. This striking appellation-level Pinot is one of the overachievers of the year. Then again, vineyard sites are Domaine de La Côte and Sanford & Benedict, which was not bottled separately, but used for wine. The 30% whole clusters are perfectly judged. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This bottling comes mostly from Sandhi’s own vineyards, with a healthy dollop from Sanford & Benedict Vineyard. Given the pedigree and the complexity, this wine is a steal. The marriage of light pomegranate fruit and smoky cluster spice is haunting, vibrant and assertive, the whole-bunch component providing ballast and depth, but the wine’s acidity is the lasting impression. For duck prosciutto. Inner quote mark (10/2020)
