This wine is 100% Pinot Noir. As mentioned above, the Sun Chase Vineyard (40 acres) is among the finest in California and it is made up entirely of French Pinot Noir clones. According to the Wine Spectator, this “hillside block absolutely flourished in 2014. Known for its structured yet flamboyant nature, this vineyard delivered only the best to the table this year. Strikingly complex, rich and fruity, this beautifully proportioned Pinot Noir delivers an initial burst of red berry fruit that echoes red and black licorice. This quickly gains traction and depth, with firm, layered tannins that give the spicy berry flavors a perfect foundation.” Mostly new French oak was used for the 20-month aging process.
