Chalone Vineyard Pinot Noir Estate 375ml 2006   
Sku: 1445578*

Limestone soils, similar to those found in Burgundy, give this Pinot Noir its distinctive minerality, while the low rainfall on the mountain plateau concentrates its rich flavors. This wine is a blend of Dijon, Pommard and our heritage Macwood Pinot Noir clones from vineyards planted between 1973 and 2000. The Dijon clones contribute brightness and fruit-forward character, while the Pommard clone adds hibiscus-flower notes and structured tannins. The Macwood clone brings hints of rustic earthiness to the wine, which Robert says gives an Old World complexity.

Wine maker notes
Perched high in the remote Gavilan Mountain Range, 1,800 feet above Salinas Valley, Chalone Vineyard is a one-of-a-kind wine estate. This is extreme wine country with rare limestone soils, limited rainfall and wide diurnal temperature swings. The unique terroir produces wines that impart a subtle mineral character with compelling fruit and richness. The wine is darkly colored and amazingly opulent, with fantastic fruit intensity leaning toward red cherries and strawberries. Firm in body, with big tannins, this wine has amazing texture and length of finish. The ten months it spent in French oak integrated the fruit and tannins into a truly hedonistic glass of wine.
