A Premiere Release for Dragonette, their first Sanford & Benedict bottling from this renowned vineyard, and it arrived with a bang!
The Dragonette Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is just radiant. The wine is bold, yet translucent and exquisitely layered. Stunning notes of black cherry, plum, spice, lavender all come together in the glass. Fleshy on the palate with sweet red fruit, blood orange and a touch of spice make for a heady and sumptuous wines. This first release is a home-run! Well-balanced, gorgeously textured from start to finish. Well Done!
Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “The 2019 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard was 80% destemmed, which is a lot of stems by this estate’s standards, and spent 16 months in 40% new barrels. It’s another exotic, complex, incredibly satisfying Pinot Noir in the lineup that offers ripe red and black fruits, black tea, orange blossom, and spice-laced aromas and flavors. I love its texture, and it has terrific mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and a great, great finish.”
