WSWE-94Size750MLVintage2013SKU22619The producer has chosen to highlight the Petaluma Gap region within the larger Sonoma Coast appellation on this wine, a nod to its recent purchase of the well-regarded Sun Chase Vineyard as well as an endorsement of the Gap becoming an appellation of its own one day.

One the palate, firm yet supple tannins add weight and structure, supporting layers of plum, raspberry and cinnamon spice.
Size750MLVintage2012SKU21592This is totally different with big Cabernet Sauvignon fruit up front, with blueberry, black pepper and brairy notes.
