Racines, Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, 2017


Get 10% off purchases of 12+ bottles of wine. (Use code 10OFF at checkout.)

A collaboration between Justin Willett (of Santa Barbara's Tyler Winery), Etienne de Montille (of Burgundy's famed Domaine de Montille), and Rodolphe Péters (currently at the helm of his family's Grower Champagne estate, Pierre Péters), Racines focuses on the unique microclimate of the Sta. Rita Hills. The region's oceanic influence allows Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to ripen perfectly, and the three winemakers' passion and skill make for some truly stunning wines, perhaps the best iteration of New World meets Old World styling we've tasted yet.

"The 2017 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is sensual, silky and impeccable in its balance. There is lovely nuance in the glass to match the wine's mid-weight, restrained personality. Sweet floral notes and purplish fruit linger in the glass. My impression is that the 2017 is still recovering from its relatively recent bottling. We will see." -Vinous

"Bottled one week before I tasted it, the 2017 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is medium ruby and youthfully shy, giving up black and red cherry preserves, orange peel, warm earth, raspberry and rhubarb with cinnamon stick and dried herbs. Medium-bodied with intense, spicy fruits, it has firm, chalky tannins and seamless acidity, finishing long." -Robert Parker

"The 2017 Racines Wine Co. Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir is sourced from three separate parcels, and includes a portion of the original, own-rooted vines planted in 1971. The nose is classic Sanford & Benedict, combining freshness of fruit with crushed stones and an airy texture. Flavours of orange rinds and red plum skins segue into a finish that takes a few seconds to really set in and show itself. As with the rest of the Racines wines, there is structure here for the long term and the wines should be cellared for a least a few years."
