    The 2016 Pinot Noir Estate Sandy's is impeccable. Gracious and lifted, as these wines tend to be, the Sandy's also has lovely beams of underlying tannin that give the wine its persistence and overall shape. Orange peel, cranberry, white pepper, mint and red berry are all beautifully lifted throughout. The 50% whole clusters add aromatic intensity without overpowering the wine. Simply put, the 2016 is a model of total elegance and finesse. Don't miss it.
