Concentrated fruit and floral notes on the nose. On the palate, flavors of red cherry, boysenberry, tobacco and a hint of licorice are well balanced with refreshing acidity and elegant tannins.
Planted in 1999, the Sunny View Vineyard is on the Santa Rosa plain in the center of the Russian River Valley AVA. Despite its name, it is a low lying site shrouded in fog overnight and through the morning during the growing season. The result of this very cool site is a delicately balanced Pinot Noir, which achieves depth and concentration in ripeness while retaining acidity and verve.
After an early bud-break, a cool spring led to lower yields. Nonetheless, the Vineyard’s cool nights and morning fog through the warmer summer months helped lengthen the hang time, resulting in excellent quality fruit with ripe fruit flavors and good acidity.
