Winemaker's Notes: Boer amply demonstrates why the Chalone AVA is so utterly distinctive. Nearly 2000’ up in the Gabilan Range by Pinnacles National Park, it boasts a vanishingly rare amalgam of decomposing granite [from the eruption 26 million years ago of the now-extinct Neenach volcano] and soft, chalky limestone [remnant of an ancient seabed uplifted by tectonic subduction] with extreme daily temperature swings. The unusual geology juxtaposes power and tannin against elegance and detail, while the wide 50 degree diurnal shift plugs 220 volts of clean solar power into every bottle. The Boer is significantly lusher and sweeter than the more tense, stony Antle just a mile distant, though the indelible imprint of Chalone is ever present."
