2 new amazing wines from Santa Rita! Available at Kirkwood and online

2021 Sandhi Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills...$35.99 / 750ml
Wine Advocate: 96 Points
The 2021 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills has a medium ruby color and pretty scents of cinnamon stick, aniseed, iron, underbrush and charcuterie with a core of red cherries and cranberries. Medium-bodied yet very concentrated, it has a powdery frame, sparks of refreshing acidity and a very long, graphite-driven finish. Precise and detailed, it deserves to spend another 2-3 years in bottle.
2020 Sandhi Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills...$31.99 / 750ml
Wine Advocate: 94 Points
The 2020 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills is Chablisienne in style, opening with matchstick and roasted almond that give way to pure scents of lemon peel and chalk. The light-bodied palate is juicy and bright with transparent citrus flavors and a touch of texture to anchor the long, softly leesy finish
