Ancillary Cellars, Sun Chase Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018 

 July 5, 2022

By  rackhouse

Located 1400 feet above sea level on the western slopes of Sonoma Mountain, the sun chase vineyard is one of the first to emerge from the daily intrusion of fog in the Petaluma Gap.  Capturing ample sunlight throughout the growing season translates into a pure, fruit-driven wine that is densely packed, unctuous, and powerfully rich.  Strikingly complex and fruity, this beautifully proportioned wine delivers an initial burst of red berry fruit with notes of new leather and licorice.  From there the wine quickly gains traction and depth, with firm, layered tannins that give the spicy berry flavors a perfect foundation.  A beautiful fruit-forward entrance gives way to lively acidity lifting the mid-palate and showcasing the strawberry aromatics.
