Sanford Gravity Flow Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills
This is our second “Gravity Flow” Pinot Noir. Named in honor of our water source, natural springs that flow via gravity from high on the hills to the southeast behind the vineyards down to the winery. Gravity flow also refers to our use of this natural force to gently move our wine during the production process. A blend of our two estate vineyards, the 2014 Gravity Flow Pinot Noir is a small blend make from individually selected barrels from five vineyard blocks.
Tasting Notes: This classic cool climate Pinot is complex and well structured, with aromas of earthly black cherry and Asian spices. The palate is silky with the tannin structure to hold up to bold and earthy flavored foods and the aging potential for 10+ years in the cellar.
