Virginia Boone, a writer and reviewer for Wine Enthusiast Magazine, has featured a wine from our upcoming release in Sonoma Magazine this month.
Of our 2014 Mardikian Vineyard Pinot Noir, she writes, “John Benedetti is the owner and winemaker of this Corralitos-based winery, in the mountains of Santa Cruz. He’s ventured to the Sonoma Coast to source grapes from a vineyard planted by James MacPhail of MacPhail Family Wines and Jim Pratt, on the edge of Freestone. The wine opens with Syrah-like white pepper that persists on the soft, silky palate. Roses and black tea provide savory succulence, with an intensity of pine.”
