The Sandy's block is named in honor of Ron Melville's sister and was deliberately planted on the extremely sandy northwest section of their east vineyard. Sandy's has performed heroically over the years particularly when considering its extreme location combined with the poor, well drained soils of this section. This block also contains clonal material representative of their new era of plantings and includes selections from Merry Edwards, Calera (Clone 90), and clones 459 and 114. These four selections, when planted on sand, produce wildly intense and pretty aromatics with a very ethereal and harmonic palate impression.

Vibrant garnet in color, Sandy's is aromatically complex, with notes of rhubarb, raspberry bramble, oolong tea, pink pepper, dried basil, five spice, and ocean spray. The palate is supple and broad, with flavors of pomegranate, ripe cranberry, bright Bing cherry, candied tangerine peel and hints of rose potpourri. Held together by finely diffused tannins and a backbone of elegant acidity, the wine finishes with tremendous length and a wave of minerality.
