The Wagner's come from a long line of grape growers and winemakers, with a history in Napa Valley dating back to the 1850s. Through the years, they have embraced a hands-on work ethic and are constantly seeking to make better and better wines. Led by owner and winemaker Charlie Wagner, Sea Sun Pinot Noir is created from the singular beauty and character of the California coast. All of the coastal regions where they source grapes for Sea Sun provide ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir, with cooling ocean breezes and an extended growing season that leads to heightened complexity in the wine. These regions also feature subtle differences and as a result, Sea Sun wines are layered with aromas and flavours, holding broad appeal for a wide range of palates.
A bountiful deep red, this wine features scents of baked cherries, toasted wood and fresh out of the oven baguette, with hints of cranberry and flinty graphite. On the palate, there is an intensity and creaminess to the fruit, evoking the ripe richness of pie filling. Toasted oak and vanilla add intriguing layers, while grippy tannins create depth and dimension. The finish tapers off with this wine's lush fruit.
