A classic bouquet of dark fruit and Christmas spices. The same flavors return on the palate along with a touch of pepper, forest floor and lovely leathery 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 nmorning fog through the warmer summer months helped lengthens the hang time, resulting in excellent quality fruit with ripe fruit flavors and good acidity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A deeply layered nose of dried fruit, cherry, and baking spices. A finely tuned yet rich entry to the palate and a juicy mouthwatering middle with continued notes of dark cherry and plum, allspice, white pepper, forest floor, and leather. The finish is long and rich.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-picked, hand-sorted, and gently crushed. They underwent a five-day cold soak followed by fermentation with a combination of punchdown and pump-over maceration techniques to enhance avor extraction.
Winemaker Notes
The 2016 vintage was an excellent growing year, with a warm and dry winter, just like the previous four vintages. Bud break happened at a normal time, even though there were above average temperatures and once again, low rainfall totals. Cooler temperatures in
