Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Our 2015 Estate Pinot Noir is composed of 100% estate vineyard fruit. The inviting aromas of ripe cherry, blueberry and baking spices are well defined. The dynamic palate shows a beautiful balance of bright raspberry and plum complemented by notes of root beer and nutmeg. A wet stone minerality neatly ties up all these elements on the lingering finish. This wine is a perfect match with spice-rubbed beef tenderloin or mushroom risotto. The thin, limestone-rich soils of Chalone Vineyard produce low yields of grapes bursting with rich, intense flavors and impeccable balance. Year after year, our Estate Pinot Noir exemplifies the impeccable structure and flavor complexity imparted by old vines budded to heritage clones; and, the 2015 vintage is no different. This Pinot Noir hails from the Vista and Reservoir blocks of our estate vineyards with many heritage clones of Pinot Noir dating back to 1972 plantings of Macwood clone."

    Chalone Vineyard is a very special site on California's Central Coast, with low nutrient, decomposed limestone soils and high elevations. The Heritage Clone Pinot Noir grown in this site possesses a distinctive minerality and concentration of flavor, due in part to the soil and cooler climate, but also the diurnal temperature shifts. The wine at first glance looks on the darker, more extracted side, and offers heady aromas of peony, tea rose and black cherry, but the palate is remarkably light and energetic, with balanced acidity and fine, mouth coating tannins.
