Sea Sun by Caymus Pinot Noir 2019 from 8wines
Cellar for 4-5 years. No need to decant it. Sea Sun is the personal project of winemaker Charlie Wagner, son of Chuck, who founded the prestigious Caymus Vineyards in Rutherford, Napa Valley, in 1972. The Wagner family has a long winemaking tradition that dates back to the mid-1850s, when their ancestors moved to California from France and Germany. But while his father, Chuck Wagner, made his reputation on prestigious Cabernet Sauvignon, the son found success with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This Pinot Noir is a full expression of the unique beauty and character of the Californian coast. Grapes are sourced in the coastal regions of Monterey, Santa Barbara, and Solano. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. Its color is a light cherry red with some darker hues. It is very fragrant, rich, and expressive with aromas of ripe cherry, plum and red berries jam, toasted vanilla, black pepper, soft spices, and aromatic herbs. On the palate it shows all its elegance and silkiness. It tastes like a mix of toasted oak spice and cherry tart, followed by ripe plum and black pepper. Soft tannins and balanced acidity are perfectly integrated. Have it now with grilled steak or roast duck, or keep it for a few more years in the cellar.
