SANDHI Pinot Noir 2021
(Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, CA) $42
Discovering Sandhi feels like you’ve just been let in on a secret that a small group of Pinot Noir fanatics have kept to themselves. The Pinots are fabulous—artisanal, silky, layered in the manner of Burgundy, but with a core of California richness. This 2021—just out—hums with freshness and energy, and dances with spiciness. Sandhi is a collaboration of super talented winemaker Sashi Moorman and the well-known former sommelier and Burgundy expert Raj Parr. With the mind-bending prices of Grand Cru Burgundy (which have skyrocketed in the last year, often to well over $1,000 a bottle), knowing a top small producer of delicious, affordable Sta. Rita Hills Pinot feels…fantastic.
