2012 Tyler Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Santa Barbara image

(95 points)  In the same league, the 2012 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict comes from some of the oldest vines in the Sta. Rita Hills (planted in 1971), and the top part of the block, on a northwest-facing slope. It possesses an exotic, nervy and vibrant style, with gorgeous mint, citrus peel and crushed rock-like aromas and flavors all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied, layered and drop-dead gorgeous on the palate, it excels for its purity and focus more than its richness and power. It should evolve gracefully over the coming 4-5 years as well.
