Sandar & Hem 2018 'Mindego Ridge' Pinot Noir, Santa Cruz Mountains, California

Winemaker: Robert Bergstrom

Farming: Organic

Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Terroir: Santa Cruz Mountains, Northern Skyline. A blend of vineyard blocks. Rocky, densely-wooded mountainsides. 

Vinification: All clones and blocks are vinified separately before blending.

Aging: 18 months in 15% new French oak barrels

Tasting Note: An exceptional vintage for the Santa Cruz Mountains. Aromas of this cuvée leap from the glass with notes of morello cherry  and pomegranate. A barrel selection chosen for its youthful readiness,  the palate is supple yet refreshing, intense but focused. Crunchy red fruit melds with a silky palate offering a light, but long, smooth pinot noir.

Scores: 93 Points, Vinous
"The 2018 Pinot Noir Mindego Ridge Vineyard is terrific. A burst of sweet red cherry fruit, blood orange, mint and rose petal is immediately captivating. Medium in body, translucent and wonderfully deep, the 2018 is positively stellar. Savory accents from the whole clusters and a touch of new oak frame the finish. The 2018 is breathtakingly beautiful. This is an impressive debut." - Antonio Galloni
