"The 2015 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is a sexy wine. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, mint and hard candy infuse this racy, elegant supremely elegant Pinot Noir from Au Bon Climat and Jim Clendenen. Drinking window: 2018-2027. 92 points

I was very impressed by the wines I tasted with Jim Clendenen at Au Bon Climat and Clendenen Family Vineyards. Clendenen is of course one of the central figures in the Santa Barbara wine scene. Over the years, he has influenced or directly mentored many of today's young superstar winemakers. It is therefore quite ironic that, tasted within context of today's Santa Barbara, Clendenen's wines are richer and more powerful than those made by most, if not all, of the young winemakers he has influenced. Moreover, these wines are not at all shy in their use of new French oak. But those are really just details. In this tasting, these new releases are positively brilliant. I can't recommend them highly enough."
