About The Wine
Californian Pinot that hits the high notes, in terms of both general quality and flavour - it is boisterous, flavour-filled but even a little fine-boned (for US Pinot..)
These finer edge qualities are no surprise as the majority of the fruit is from the Domaine de la Cote estate vineyards, home to some of the country's rarest and most high-toned Pinots.
Beetroot, cherry and plum flavours are most in evidence along with a developing gamey, autumnal note that will develop further in time.
A contradictory Pinot of purity and depth.
Sandhi is the partner wine label to Domaine de la Cote, founded by Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman in the Santa Rita Hills area of Santa Barbara, up the coast from Los Angeles.
Sandhi are generally more approachable wines, to the palate and the wallet, than Domaine de la Cote, and explore the potential of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from across Santa Barbara and California.
Sandhi means 'treaty' or 'alliance' in Sanskrit, to represent the partnerships he has formed with local, sustainable grape growers who supply much of the fruit for Sandhi wines.
