The Boer Pinot Noir is almost always Sandler's first fruit of the vintage, and in 2016, it came in on August 26, just 6 days behind the record-setting 2015 harvest. As with each vintage of Boer Pinot, it was fermented with 100% whole clusters, no destemming, in the style of the great Chalone Pinots of the 1970s and '80s. We hope this wine will age for years, just like those old Chalones.
