Awards Accolades: <strong>Gold Medal</strong> - Taster's Guild International Wine Competition - 2008<br/><br/> <strong>Gold Medal</strong> - Sonoma County Harvest Fair - 2008<br/><br/> <strong>Bronze Medal</strong> - Sonoma County Harvest Fair - 2007<br/><br/> About This Wine: This release marks Janae and Frane Franicevic’s third unveiling of their estate planted and grown Pinot Noir – it’s the most developed and the fullest on the palate. There’s more espresso and mixed herbs than the 2005 vintage. The finish is elongated, with toasted silk and subtle earth notes. A great Turkey-wine but this Pinot can also be quaffed on its own. Only 26 barrels made - 638 cases.<br/><br/> About The Winery: Suncé, meaning "sun" in Croatian, is located on Olivet Road west of Santa Rosa in Sonoma County. Where olive trees once dominated the landscape, old headpruned vines now quietly assert their beauty. Nestled in this serene environment, Suncé Winery provides a tranquil, romantic, yet down-to-earth atmosphere.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>Hand Picked and Crushed:</strong> Sept 23, 2006<br/><br/> <strong>Brix at Harvest:</strong> 25<br/><br/> <strong>Pressed:</strong> Oct 6, 2006<br/><br/> <strong>PH:</strong> 3.62<br/><br/> <strong>TA:</strong> .42<br/><br/> <strong>RS:</strong> 026<br/><br/> <strong>Alcohol:</strong> 14.5%<br/><br/> <strong>Aged:</strong> 12 months in 80% new Tonnellerie Loureiro French Oak<br/><br/> <strong>Bottled:</strong> Sept. 8, 2007<br/><br/>
