"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."

"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."

TASTING NOTES 

“On the nose, black cherry and raspberry dominate with a touch of black plum, cigar box and baking spices. Intense dark fruit flavors of black cherry, black raspberry and red plum backed by fennel, sage and vanilla.”

THE STORY TO KNOW

"When Fess Parker purchased the 714 acre Foxen Canyon Ranch in 1988 his plan was to run cattle, plant a few acres of vineyard and perhaps someday, establish a small winery. His dream was to start a family business that he could pass on to future generations. Dreams do come true.

Eli Parker and his sister, Ashley, remain involved as stewards of their father’s vision. Ashley’s husband, Tim Snider, serves as winery President and oversees the sales, marketing and day to day operations of the winery. Blair Fox assumed the role of head winemaker in 2005.

The home ranch vineyard, named for Fess’s late son-in-law, Rodney, has earned a great reputation for the quality of its Rhône varietals, while long term contracts with some of the finest vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA are the fruit sources for the winery’s Burgundian offerings.

In recent years the winery has sharpened its focus toward production of more small lot, vineyard designated and clonal selection Rhône and Burgundian varietals."
