This wine greets you with a gorgeous nose of strawberries and bright red stone fruits. On the palate; this well-constructed youngster offers a full, intense body loaded with some more red and black stone fruit and a velvety appearance with a slight touch of earthiness and minerality. The wine finishes with an amazingly beautiful long finish.

Robert Parker 94 Points: “The 2019 Pinot Noir Chimera bottling is delicious this vintage and a great value. Medium ruby, it’s intensely scented of raspberry liqueur, blood orange, licorice, iron and earth. The full-bodied palate is plush, silky and open with generous, spicy fruits and a very long finish. It was aged 11 months in 10% new French oak.”
Winemaker Notes: “ Medium dark red to purple in color with a vibrant purple hue leads into perfumed aromas of dark berries, crème cherry and raspberry with a light vanilla oak note. Nicely integrated with red cherry fruit, pomegranate, and strawberry preserve. Chimera has a medium weight and tannins with a silky texture and a candied fruit finish.”
