Product DescriptionWine Enthusiast Review
Smashed black plums, mulberry and alpine strawberry show through the crushed rocks on the nose of this bottling that is lifted by a tarragon spice. Tangy blackberry and elderberry show on the palate, where wild thyme, oregano and peppercorns contribute to an intriguing sense of depth.
Wine Tasting Notes
This vintage's perfectly ripened grapes gave the Chalone Estate Pinot Noir its vivid fruit character - reminiscent of wild cherry and blueberry - with fragrant hints of rose petal, hibiscus flower and mountain sage. Enticing undertones of earth and mineral come from old vines rooted in Chalone Vineyard's limestone terroir. Integrated spices from French oak barrels add even more complexity, while the silky tannins and balanced acidity provide graceful structure.
