The entry level 2020 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills comes from a mix of the Rinconada and Sanford & Benedict vineyards and spent 11 months in 27% new French oak. This ruby-hued effort gives up a gorgeous perfume of ripe raspberry and strawberry fruits as well as white flowers, spice, and a touch of chalky, mineral-like nuances. Medium-bodied, seamless, and balanced on the palate, it's just a flat-out beautiful expression of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. Drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years.

Ripe and juicy but restrained in style, with the core of black cherry and raspberry notes taking equal turns with dried anise, red and black tea and chaparral hints. Keeps a juicy edge through the finish, with a smoldering intensity. Drink now through 2029. 7,417 cases made.

The 2020 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is a soft, understated wine. Crushed red berry fruit, mint, white pepper and chalk give the appellation Pinot lovely brightness to play off its mid-weight structure. This is a very pretty, entry-level offering from S&B and La Rinconada.
