The 2012 Amrita Pinot Noir is the second vintage of Amrita from the organic Wenzlau Vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills, which is adjacent to the great vineyards of Sea Smoke and Mount Carmel. The venture is a partnership between Charles Bank (Screaming Eagle/Jonata, etc) and Raj Parr (Sommelier of the Michael Mina Group). Their winemaker is Sashi Moorman. Sandhi, is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “alliance” and was chosen to reflect the partnership at the winery. Charles, Raj and Sashi’s have one common goal – make amazing wine that is not overripe, does not have high alcohol but accentuate subtlety, minerality, structure and balance.

The 2012 Sandhi “Amrita”, meaning the “nectar of immortality” in Sanskrit is aromatic with layers of crushed cherries and licorice. This knockout wine is huge, yet extremely well-tailored and elegant. Remarkable texture, gorgeous from start to finish. Sweet cherries and licorice jump out of the glass on impact. This medium to full-bodied wine is elegant and lush with layers of well-balanced fruit and acid ratios. Gobs of red and black cherries, flowers, a touch of spice and subtle acidity dance across the palate. A real complex beauty and will turn many heads. The finish is long and delicate.
