Winemaker Jennifer Marion Notes
We source our Pinot Noir Grapes from two unique vineyards in the Sonoma Coast AVA. Both vineyards are on the western facing slope of Sonoma Mountain, their differences lie in their altitude. Gap's Crown Vineyard is at 800 feet above sea level and Sun Chase Vineyard is at 1400 feet above sea level. The 600 foot difference may seem minimal but somehwere between 800 and 1400 feet the cooling fog, famous to this region of Sonoma Valley, disappears. As a result, we end up with two sites, both with stellar, deep draining soils but one, Gap's Crown, covered in fog till late morning, and the other, Sun Chase, exposed to the moderate sunshine all day long. Gap's Crown, with its cool, fog-ridden mornings creates wine full of minerality and spice. Sun ...more... Chase, with its warm yet quite windy climate, delivers wines with aromas and flavors of rich fruits true to each grape variety. The fruit was hand harvested early in the morning to ensure the coldest juice possible and came into the winery in exceptional condition. Then we had sorted, de-stemmed and the fruit was put into one-ton bins. After fermentation was completed, we avoided harsh and green tannins by using a basket press which prevents skins and seeds from being crushed. The juice then underwent complete malolactic fermentation, Our finished wine was transferred to French oak barrels, 25% new, where it aged for 11 months before being bottled.
