Winemaker's Notes

Our 2017 Sun Chase Pinot Noir hails from the windswept slopes off a single vineyard perched 1,400 above sea in the Petaluma Gap appellation. A spectacular vineyard, with a west facing slope on soils of rock, loam and underlying clays, this is really a mountain Pinot Noir where the color and tannins are concentrated by the site. The wine offers concentrated notes of black cherry, raspberry and dark plum notes with spirited tannins, deep flavors and a long, fruit-focused finish.
