Graceful Pinot Noir by 100 Point Cab Producer

 

Located 1400 feet above sea level on the western slopes of Sonoma Mountain, the Sun Chase vineyard is one of the first to emerge from the daily intrusion of fog in the Petaulma Gap, allowing it to capture ample sunlight throughout the growing season. this translates into a pure, fruit driven wine that is densely packed, unctuous, and powerfully rich – the trademark of a great Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Its crimson color is an entry into aromas of dark red cherry, bittersweet chocolate, and graphite.  Integrated sweet strawberry jam, plum, barrel spice and hints of lavender flowers meld together to form an opulent and juicy wine. Dark spices lace into a supple and pliant mid-palate, leading to silky yet open knit flowing finish.  while this wine is definitely approachable now, a couple years of bottle age will unveil hidden layers and additional complexity

Jeb Dunnuck 95 Points: “I loved the 2016 Pinot Noir Sun Chase Vineyard and it comes from higher elevation site located above the Gap’s Crown vineyard in the Petaluma Gap. Destemmed and aged in 40% new oak, it offers a darker edge to its cherry and framboise fruits, forest floor, earth and spicy aromas and flavors. It’s ripe, textured, and nicely concentrated and has bright acidity and clean, chiseled finish, all pointing to it evolve gracefully for at least a decade.”
