The 2017 Sun Chase Vineyard Pinot Noir is a best-of-barrel selection, consisting of three clones that were fermented separately. Each barrel was selected to make this distinct, site-specific wine. The wine presents a medium weight and subtle tannin structure. Flavors of tart red cherry, strawberry seed and roses are a pleasant introduction to the lingering finish.
