Sandar & Hem 2018 Pinot Noir, Santa Cruz Mountains, California
Winemaker: Robert Bergstrom
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.
