2012 Tyler Pinot Noir Sanford And Benedict

"The 2012 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is another beautiful wine that exemplifies the fresher, focused style of the estate. Sporting a pretty translucent color, it gives up ample menthol, framboise and citrus blossom to go with a medium-bodied, energetic and vibrant texture that carries bright acidity and terrific length. Playing in that pretty, refined and elegant style, it should evolve gracefully through 2020. Justin Willett continues to knock it out of the park with these new releases, and few people in the Central Coast are doing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay better than this guy. These all lean toward the more focused, energetic end of the spectrum, yet they have solid mid-palate depth, vibrant fruit and classy profiles that keep you coming back to the glass." [+]
