The Chimera is a blend of Hendricks (Sonoma Coast), Freestone & Widdoes (Russian River), Wilson Vineyard (Sonoma Coast) and Garys’ & Pisoni (Santa Lucia Highlands) vineyards. Only 500 cases were produced!
“More beet root, black currant, plum, and cherry characteristics are found in the 2008 Pinot Noir Chimera Vineyard. With an attractive smoky earthiness, abundant fruit, full body, and good richness, it should provide pleasant drinking over the next 4-5 years.
Sean Capiaux fashions O’Shaughnessy’s outstanding Cabernets from Howell Mountain as well as a half dozen impressive Pinot Noirs at his own estate, Capiaux Cellars.”
