2012 Chamisal Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir Edna Valley
93 Points, Wine Enthusiast. "Wildly expressive aromas include maple syrup-laced chamomile tea, root beer extract, wild raspberry and menthol. The palate continues the excellent array: red fruits with oregano, thyme, even basil, some sanguine flavors, some coffee. It would be a perfect companion to roasted pork or turkey, or anything that needs some extra spice." -MK
91 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. "The 2012 Pinot Noir is a beauty. Perfumed, up front and textured, it shows the vintage nicely with its spiced cherries, tar, crushed flowers and hints of licorice on the nose. Showing more floral notes with air, I love its overall purity and texture, and it should continue to drink nicely for another 3-4 years, if not longer.
Coming from the Edna Valley and leaning heavily toward the fresher, elegant and lightly textured end of the spectrum, these are all noteworthy wines from Chamisal Vineyards."
Notes from the Winery: Delightful notes of cherry pie, spiced red plum, black fig, cherry cola, vanilla bean and distinctive Chamisal spice swirl from our 2012 Pinot Noir. Bright strawberry and cherry fruit flood the palate, framed by elegant tannins, vibrant acidity and subtle hints of cocoa powder and cherry blossom on the lasting finish."
