Chronicle Pinot Noir 2006

Sonoma Coast, United States

Pamela scored this wine: 92/100

This wine really represents the true expression of Pinot Noir. The fact that it is not Oregon even thought it tastes Willamette Valley or maybe even Anderson Valley is an encouraging signal. By that I mean some wine producers have shown they can reign in their personal styles and approach the task as something you do to please others. Candied apple at the county fair crushed cardamom and red berry aromas. Balanced flavors persist with a earthy cherry almost dried flavor that has some spike of spice that makes you take another sip to confirm you actually did just tasted what you thought you drank, oh yeah it is that good. Grab a case before it disappears.
