Chalk Hill Estate Bottled Pinot Noir 2012
2012 was a dream vintage, coming on the heels of a few challenging years. The rainy spring and warm, even summer temperatures were perfect for growing beautiful grapes. Quality is excellent across the board. This exciting wine, our second vintage of Pinot Noir, is lush and rich, but with vibrant acidity that carries the finish. Aromas include black cherries, Framboise, tea and rose petals. Ripe cherries and pomegranate dominate the flavors, along with hints of cocoa and warm spices.
