Description: In this AVA the hills run east and west. With its proximity to the ocean, vineyards here enjoy good fog and a Pacific breeze running through the craggy valleys. It's a great place for Pinot Noir. Sanford curates eight selections from two of their historic vineyards to express this region's sense of place and it shows in spades. Punchy bright cherry fruit with a heady dose of cola and umami welcomes the nose. It's sunny here as well so you get a nice depth of fruit balanced by active natural acidity. It's a great wine.
