2017 Fess Parker "Sanford & Benedict Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $60)

SKU #1501474 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard comes from the Sta. Rita Hills and spent 17 months in 29% new French oak. It offers a ruby/plum color as well as lots of macerated black cherries, orange blossom, spice, and an exotic, smoked applewood-like character. Rounded, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully balanced on the palate, it has remarkable purity of fruit, building tannins, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's another smoking good effort from winemaker Blair Fox. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is one of the standouts in this range. Nuanced, perfumed and beautifully layered, The 2017 shows why this site is so highly regarded. Bright red/purplish berry fruit, blood orange, cedar and sweet floral overtones build into the super-expressive finish. This is such a complete wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)
