Sean makes it real...
This is a rich, plummy and very easy to like Pinot noir! Remarkable fruit with subtle spice and cedar frame this elegant red. A racy Pinot that shows-off its Russian River terroir.
Sean has access to several excellent Russian River vineyard sources that boost Chimera's quality and value. Medium dark red to purple in color with a vibrant purple hue leads into perfumed aromas of dark berries, crème cherry and raspberry with a light vanilla oak note. Well integrated with red cherry fruit, pomegranate, and strawberry preserve. Chimera has a medium weight and tannins with silky texture and a delicious finish.
