Sanford Block 4D Pinot Noir
Our most powerful single block Pinot Noir at Sanford & Benedict Vineyard. This block is planted to the 943 selection of Pinot Noir which is known for its exceptionally small berries, which results in a densely concentrated wine with great intensity.
The 2017 Block 4D packs a serious punch. It has deep, brooding aromas that jump out of the glass with Asian spices, Christmas cake, and iron oxide. On the palate, it has marvelous fruit density, and richness with lavender, and earthy notes. Night harvesting, gentle destemming, native fermentation in barrel aging in the finest French oak barrels are some of the classic techniques employed to craft this lovely wine.
