Exotically elegant, the subtle nuances of this wine are followed by a lingering finish. The nose opens to an alluring perfume of raspberry, rose hips, and mandarin followed by rich aromas of tobacco, cedar, and forest floor. Spiced throughout with cinnamon, lavender, and sage, the fruit expands in the glass and fills the palate with kirsch, cherry preserve, dried cranberries, and hints of tea, clove, and tangerine.  The mouth feel is soft and rich, with a considerable acidic lift. Toward the back, it reveals an earthen and tannic strength, and the finish is long and dominated by fine, dry tannins and dried spices and fruits.  With age this wine deepens and softens, rewarding the palate while exhibiting an even more exotic nose as the bouquet develops.

Earthy, organic aromas accompanied by a fruit kissed perfume tantalize you in for a taste. The rich, tilled earth is peppered with light toasty notes, dried floral perfumes, clover, rose petal and geranium flower. Generous and ripe, the nose shows plenty of huckleberry and wild strawberry. The broad palate is generous with plum and blueberry, which complement mouth-coating tannins. While this wine will cellar nicely for 5-10 years, this is a vintage ready to drink now so buy plenty to age.

The warm, but not hot growing season of 2016 was as long or longer than previous vintages and began with an early bud break and ended by the beginning of October.  With no pressure from the weather, growers were able to relax throughout the year and enjoy a warm, dry harvest.  The vintage was ripe, aromatic, and showed more restraint than the previous more opulent vintages.

With its brilliant garnet color, this wine always displays balance, grace, and the most velvety of textures.  A lovely bouquet of roses and red licorice intermix with notes of cocoa, berries, sandalwood, and toasted grains to invite your first sip.  The fruit concentrates on the mid-palate somewhat, revealing subtle notes of cherry pie and earl grey tea.  The legendary palate is expansive, bright with acidity layered into a silky texture. It finishes with a light, understated grip, and moves backward through the finish.  It continues to evolve toward more earthen and mineral notes, spreading to coat the entire palate and continue to reveal new aromas.

A direct representation of the Toyon Farm terroir, this wine greets bright and well spiced, then melds effortlessly into a rich palate coating smoothness. The bouquet is filled with notes of dark berries, spiced herbs, and cola.  The brooding palate, dominated by an almost visceral layer of mouth-coating tannins and mid-palate flavors of mocha, raspberry, and cranberry, is balanced with a bright, palate-lifting acidity.  It finishes with round and chewy chocolaty tannins that accentuate a firm chalky finish that offers promise for greater things to come.  This deep and balanced wine is structured to age gracefully for years, if you can keep a bottle around that long.

Notes of strawberry and tart pie cherry are accompanied by notes of sweet vanillin, toasted hazelnut and coffee as an introduction to this joyfully juicy blend of rich fruit and earthy spice. The wine opens to a well-integrated mid-palate of dark berries, toffee and cassis. The broad palate is elevated and brightened with a mouthwatering acidity that welcomes this wine to the table. Sassafras, herbal notes and baking spices are revealed in the satisfying finish.

Sun Chase vineyard sits high atop the Petaluma Gap, taking in much of what the Pacific Ocean and sun have to offer. Rocky and gravelly Goudling series clay loam provide the perfect home for the four clones and vineyard blocks that make up this striking wine. 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. 200 cases produced.

The 2015 Vintage started with a cool spring that limited crop yields severely... especially in the Sonoma Coast. The lower crop yields produced an intense vintage with riper fruit profiles. Platt 2015 yields were 53 tons for the 31.3 acres of vines or about 1.8 tons per acre.

Sonoma Stage typically has a very cool climate profile that emphasizes soy, mushroom and forest floor notes, but in 2015 the riper profile means that the wine shows more ripe black fruits like blackberry and black cherry.
