2010 CAPIAUX PINOT NOIR CHIMERA
"The 2010 Pinot Noir Chimera is a beautiful wine that captures the essence of the Sonoma Coast in a fairly rich style for the appellation. Dark red fruit melds into sweet herbs, spices and licorice in this generous, plush Pinot. The wine finds its focus and minerality in the rich, creamy finish. The Chimera is a blend of fruit from nine different vineyards, most of them from the Sonoma Coast and Russian River. This is about as good as California Pinot gets in the $30 price range. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016." Robert Parker 89 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.
