    More lively and fresh, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard exhibits outstanding notes of sous bois, darker berry (cherries, black raspberries) and plenty of floral characteristics to go with a medium-bodied, focused and crisp style. It's certainly outstanding and like the La Rinconada, should evolve gracefully. The elevage here was 40% whole clusters and 16 months in 15% new French oak. As with all the wines here, it was bottled unfiltered. -Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate

    The 2013 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is a voluptuous, racy beauty. Dark red and blue-fleshed stone fruits, spices, menthol and licorice open up in an expressive, resonant Pinot built on texture. This is a very pretty S&B Pinot with lovely depth and volume. Hints of hard candy and wild flowers add the final shades of nuance. -Antonio Galloni, Vinous
