2017 Sunny View Vineyard Pinot Noir
Aromas of red cherry and plum with hints of white pepper and pine needles. The palate brings red fruits, forest floor and baking spices to a classic, balanced Russian River Pinot Noir.
James MacPhail's Notes
Despite its name, Sunny View is a low lying site shrouded in fog overnight and through the morning during the growing season. The result of this cooler climate is a delicately-balanced Pinot Noir, which achieves depth and concentration in ripeness while retaining acidity and verve.

Sunny View Vineyard
Sunny View Vineyard encompasses 17 acres in the heart of the Russian River Valley, in what is called the Santa Rosa Plain. Three separate vineyard blocks are planted with three of the world’s premiere Pinot Noir clones from Burgundy, France. Cool days and foggy nights ensure vines produce less fruit, causing grapes to be highly concentrated and bursting with flavor.Explore Vineyard
