Chalk Hill Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012
Our first vintage of the 2012 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is medium ruby in color and displays expressive fruit aromas of forward Bing cherry, cranberry, espresso, toasty oak, and damp forest floor earthiness. The palate is bright and full of cherry fruit with sandalwood and cedar overtones. The finish on this Pinot is soft with earthiness typically found in Carneros Pinots, mocha, and lingering flavors of oriental spice. This wine is quite enjoyable in its youth and will develop more Pinot aromas and complexity over time.
