Sandhi Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2021
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
As a result of this steady growing season, the 2021 Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir is elegant and complex, showing notes of high-toned red fruit, wild herbs, and a compelling note of spicy, darker berry that comes through in the finish. The wine is sourced from our own Domaine de la Côte in the western part of the Santa Rita Hills, as well as other vineyard sources managed by our vinicultural team.
The 2021 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills has a medium ruby color and pretty scents of cinnamon stick, aniseed, iron, underbrush and charcuterie with a core of red cherries and cranberries. Medium-bodied yet very concentrated, it has a powdery frame, sparks of refreshing acidity and a very long, graphite-driven finish. Precise and detailed, it deserves to spend another 2-3 years in bottle.
