A Sonoma Valley native, Mike Henghold (Owner) was introduced to grape growing at an early age by his father Jim, who established a 10-acre vineyard in the hills west of Sonoma. Mike parlayed that upbringing into a career in wine sales and distribution, fostering an ever-evolving appreciation for the unique terroirs of the world. That appreciation ultimately manifested itself in Pinot Noir, perhaps the most challenging, elusive, and yet ultimately complex of varietals. It was during an eight year tenure managing a larger winery that Mike carved out the opportunity to create his dream brand in Chronicle.

Those who bought the previous Chronicle Cerise releases will not need an intro – this baby rocks! It is a sexy wine. The wine’s aromas jump out of the glass, the body is stunning, the legs are long – you see where I am going… no I am not. Stay focused, the wine is gorgeous, well-crafted, a real winner! The nose offers hints of dark cherries and plum. On the palate this wine offers seductive (here we go again) flavors of black cherries and strawberries that are intertwined with a touch of minerality. This youngster is elegant and intense without being overbearing. The finish is long , complex and equally stunning as the rest of its package. Only 150 cases produced!
