Sanford Winery is a renowned pioneer of cool-climate wine from the Santa Rita Hills, north of Santa Barbera. The legendary Sanford & Benedict vineyard was planted in 1971 by Richard Sanford and Michael Benedict, and from the very first vintages they produced highly acclaimed wines of great complexity. The vineyards and winery are certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance.
Enticing aromas of raspberry, dusty mocha and earthy notes of dried brush-wood lead to a richly textured palate of earthy, spicy red berry flavours. The bright acidity and supple tannins impart great structure and length.
