Chalone Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir 2009
With the signature of Chalone terroir, our 2009 Estate Pinot Noir reveals expressive layers of ripe cherry, wild blackberry, mineral, floral, earth and high-mountain sage. Integrated oak spices from French barrel aging add even more complexity to the vibrant aromas, flavors and lingering finish. Silky-textured tannins structure the beautifully balanced flavors and promise cellar worthiness. This Pinot Noir pairs as deliciously with barbecued salmon as it does with roasted duck, filet mignon and wild mushroom risotto.
