CAPIAUX VINEYARDS 2012 CAPIAUX PINOT NOIR GARYS
"Full red-ruby. Very ripe, soil-driven aromas of strawberry liqueur, licorice and underbrush (Capiaux mentioned "rum raisin"). Large-scaled, fat and voluminous, with terrific sucrosite but also adequate balancing acidity to the blackberry pie flavor. Silky-smooth, low-tannin pinot with immediate appeal," Steve Tanzer International Wine Cellar 91 points
|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.
