Winemaker's Notes

From the windswept slopes off a single vineyard high in the Petaluma Gap, our 2021 Sun Chase Pinot Noir expresses the deeply concentrated flavors that are a hallmark of these windy hillsides and their rocky, well drained soils. Opening with lovely notes of red fruits, cherry, plum and raspberry, the lush red fruits carry through on the palate with tones of sweet plum, sandalwood and a bright, lively pomegranate swirled through.
