Capiaux Pinot Noir ‘Chimera’ 2016


90 pts Vinous/Antonio Galloni

About | Sean Capiaux may be more famous for crafting the O’Shaughnessy Cabernets on Howell Mountain, but he’s got a passion for Pinot Noir and I’ve found his namesake winery consistently produces perhaps the best Russian River Pinot under $40 that I sell, year-in and year-out. - Michael Klinger, Beverage Director

Tasting Notes | “The 2016 Pinot Noir Chimera is laced with essence of sweet red cherry, underbrush, dried herbs, orange zest and exotic floral notes. Plump and juicy, yet also very much medium in body and gracious, with terrific freshness, the 2016 has much to offer. I would prefer to drink it over the next 7-10 years. A rush of dark red cherry, plum, mocha and licorice infuse the supple, inviting finish. Best of all, the Chimera is a terrific value.” WA
