Steep and incredibly impressive this is a vineyard site to keep your eye on. Clearly an easy vineyard to make a monster Pinot Noir from, we think the magic is in these shallow soils and the opportunity to make something ethereal while remaining richly textured an undeniably California in style. Multiple sections, clones and rootstocks are all harvested and fermented individually, some utilizing more stems than others in an effort to buttress the intensely fruity quality of this exceptional site.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pretty much the polar opposite of the Sun Chase Vineyard wine. Dark and opaque, black fruit, dark spice and rich, ripe and robust Pinot flavors. Fresh flowers, tangerine-peel, cardamom and Santa Rosa Plum give this fresh, lively Pinot Noir lift, definition and vibrancy.
