CAPIAUX VINEYARDS 2011 CAPIAUX PINOT NOIR WIDDOES
"The 2010 Pinot Noir Widdoes Vineyard bursts from the glass with sweet red berries, flowers and spices. This is a fairly tense style of Russian River Pinot, with plenty of underlying structure and acidity. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the long, vibrant finish. I especially like the cool minerality here. The wine shut down quickly in the glass however, and may be headed for a period of dormancy. Nevertheless, it is a striking wine from Sean Capiaux. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017." Antonio Galloni Wine Advocate 92 points (2010 vintage)
|Pinot Noir has always been recognized as one of the noblest red wines, and also one of the most difficult varieties to produce. It has many faces and expressions, from light and fruity to dark and earthy. It is these nuances and qualities that excite us to continually pursue the "Holy Grail" of Pinot Noir. Sean Capiaux founded Capiaux Cellars in 1994, Capiaux cellars is dedicated to producing single vineyard bottlings of Pinot Noir. The philosophy is to produce wines that express the unique location from which they came, a sense of place or distinctive quality that sets them apart. Therefore, only high quality, low yielding, select clonal grapes are used, from unique viticultural areas.
