Fodor's Review

Back in 1981, when Saintsbury released its first Pinot Noir, Los Carneros had yet to earn its current reputation as a setting in which the often finicky varietal could prosper. This pioneer helped disprove the conventional wisdom that only the French could produce great Pinot Noir, and with their subtlety and balance Saintsbury's wines continue to please. In recent years the winery has expanded its reach to the Green Valley of the Russian River Valley, the Sonoma Coast, and Mendocino County's Anderson Valley with equally impressive results. Named for the English author and critic George Saintsbury (he wrote Notes on a Cellar-Book), this unpretentious operation also makes Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Tastings are by appointment only. When the weather cooperates, tastings take place in a rose garden.
