The Sonoma Coast shows delicate aromas of dark cherries and oak vanillin. The wine is juicy and bright on the palate, displaying brisk acidity and complex flavors of cherries, raspberry, pomegranate and cola. Dry and elegant with supple tannins, it will develop complexity thru 2013.
Medium-deep ruby color; earthy, forest floor, dried mushroom aromas; complex, spicy plum and ripe cranberry flavors; vibrant acidity; good structure and balance; long finish. Complex and earthy Pinot that calls out for a hearty mushroom pasta.
A classy Pinot Noir that shows the attributes of its vintage and origin. The grapes come from the cooler, southern part of Russian River Valley, and the wine displays brisk acidity and complex flavors of cherries, pomegranates and cola. It’s young now, but dry and elegant, and should develop bottle complexity through 2013.
The Chronicle journey began in 2006, with the dedication to producing small lot, terroir-based Pinot Noir from California's North Coast ‒ Sonoma and Anderson Valley appellations. The adage "exceptional wines come from exceptional vineyards" rings true at Chronicle. California's north coast is one of the most uniquely blessed locales in the world in which to grow grapes. Our mission is to seek out the best blocks from within this region's most distinguished vineyard sites, and to utilize minimalist techniques in the winery to showcase these distinctive origins.
