Balanced fruit, firm minerality and a bright, lasting finish are hallmarks of this rich Pinot Noir. Sun Chase Vineyard has been known for its natural gap between the coastal range mountains and the inland valley. In the early morning, the divine blankets of fog cover these 248 acres, just until the sun breaks through to bring a brief warm climate, and then in the late afternoon, the cool winds and fog return. The Northwest corner (called the Petaluma Gap) of Sonoma County provides a cool maritime climate, with cool ocean breezes blessing the vines, resulting in proven high quality 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.

From the proprietor's sought-after vineyard site, on the southern side of Sonoma Mountain near Gap's Crown, up to 1,400-feet high, this wine is concentrated in cherry kirsch and orange peel, with a sultry hint of pine. Underlying flirtations with white pepper and cardamom provide further temptation, as the lengthy finish rambles on.

Charmingly fruity, with a mix of cherry, plum and berry notes offset by cedary oak and light anise shadings. Firm enough to merit short-term cellaring and a good bet to be better soon. Drink now through . 216 cases made.
