94 James Suckling
Dried rose petals, orange rind, raspberry tea, strawberry perfume and plenty of citrus and spices. On the palate, this is a muscular pinot with grainy, firm tannins, lots of dark-chocolate flavors and a taut layer of acidity. A long, mineral finish. Drink in 2020.
The 2015 Sun Chase Vineyard Pinot Noir is loaded with character. The nose reveals bright bing cherry, dried thyme, a hint of sage, blueberry, and sandalwood. The palate shows power and elegance across the mid-palate to a long finish. Notes of black cherry, boysenberry, oolong tea, and thyme layer together and persist through the finish.
