The Northwest corner of Sonoma County provides a cool maritime climate resulting in an ideal location for Pinot Noir. The hillsides of Sun Chase sit 1,400 feet above the valley floor and receive ample sunlight. Balanced fruit, minerality and a lasting finish are hallmarks of this rich Pinot Noir.

Wine EnthusiastThe producer has chosen to highlight the Petaluma Gap region within the larger Sonoma Coast appellation on this wine, a nod to its recent purchase of the well-regarded Sun Chase Vineyard as well as an endorsement of the Gap becoming an appellation of its own one day. This Pinot might help matters, a beautifully floral mix of rose petal and violet on the nose followed intricately by juicy, subtle red fruit and buoyant acidity.

Wine AdvocateThe attractive 2013 Pinot Noir Sun Chase Vineyard offers sassafras and red cherry, touches of strawberry and leather, and spicy/earthy/loamy undertones. The wine is medium to full-bodied, pure and complex. This wine is drinking well and should continue to do so for another 4-5 years.

Wine SpectatorFirm and trim, with earth- and spice-laced tannins amid dusty blackberry and wild berry flavors. Clean and persistent, this should gain a little tenderness with time. Drink now through 2023. 915 cases made.
