The single vineyard 2017 Pinot Noir Sun Chase (11 months in 40% new French oak) turns the purity and richness dial up a touch, offering beautiful black raspberry fruit, some smoked herbs, violets, and forest floor notes, medium body, beautiful elegance, and a great finish. It's an incredibly impressive, balanced Pinot Noir that I suspect will keep for a decade.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Sun Chase Vineyard is pale to medium ruby-purple with a very pretty nose of dried violets, cola, warm red cherries and blueberries with dusty earth and spice nuances. Medium-bodied, it's concentrated in the mouth with earthy/spicy accents, soft, grainy tannins and a long, layered finish. 115 cases produced.

Well-sculpted and refined dark berry and red fruit flavors are matched to crunchy acidity. Supple midpalate, featuring a finish that lingers with cocoa powder and Asian spice notes. Drink now through 2024. 500 cases made.

This is a bold, full-bodied and ripely styled red from the producer's own impressive vineyard site, high in the wilds of the new appellation. Smoky oak, wood and dark, concentrated cherry fruit combine around a core of substantial tannin and texture.
