2016 Pinot Noir, Sun Chase Vineyard

The 2016 Sun Chase Vineyard Pinot Noir is aromatically explosive, with a complex bouquet of dried cherry, pomegranate, orange zest, rhubarb and a soft hint of Vanilla. The mouthfeel of this wine is framed by its bright acid and mild tannins, which is interwoven with flavors of raspberry, and red stone fruits. The finish reveals a pleasantly soft texture accompanied by nuanced mineraltiy consisting of red dust, and graphite.

Vineyard Notes
A 40-acre vineyard located in the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast at an elevation of between 900 and 1200 feet on the western slope of Sonoma Mountain, this vineyard is above the fog line and the fruit sees sun all day – every day.  We typically source about 8 tons of meticulously farmed Pinot Noir fruit of three French clones, Dijon 828, 667 and 777.
