K&L Notes

Winemaker's notes: "This is our first Pinot Noir offering from this famed vineyard, and its pedigree resonates in this stunning and complex wine. A bright, vibrant nose offers hints of Bing cherry, tart red raspberry, and red plum with floral notes of lavender, rose petal, and black tea. On the palate the wine has beautiful freshness and structure, with tannin similar to red delicious apple skin, and a slate-like mineral presence. Aged for 18 months in 100% French oak, 30% new."

    Another fine example of cool climate California Pinot Noir. Bursting with high-toned fruit wrapped in a blanket of baking spice, this wine is a stunner. Freshness and minerality abound; giving way to floral notes. Seamless structure along with racy acidity gives this Pinot great mouthfeel and an almost never-ending finish. Sure to impress even the most discerning of palates.

    For me, Sanford and Benedict is without a doubt an American Grand Cru Pinot Noir Vineyard. What has been really inspiring over the past several years is their growing commitment to sell fruit to smaller and up-and-coming producers. It has elevated the wines coming out of the Santa Rita Hills across the board. Deovlet is one of those smaller producers that has used the fruit from this vineyard to craft absolutely stunning wines. The Deovlet Sanford and Benedict displays incredible aromas of beautiful, elegant fruit. It gently walks the line between feminine floral tones and more masculine savory elements. The palate is layered with savory notes, iron, and black fruit. Yet the body and texture of the wine ethereal and soft. A complex and intriguing wine that deserves a place at the table of any serious Pinot Noir lover.

    A gorgeous wine and my favorite of our Central Coast trip. Incredibly aromatic and concentrated with plump blackberries, cherries and baking spices, and extraordinary depth and elegance from an amazing vineyard!
