Capiaux Chimera Pinot Noir 2014
Wine AdvocateThe least expensive wine, the 2014 Pinot Noir Chimera, comes from several Russian River sites and sees only 10% new oak. Its is a beautiful wine and Capiaux's biggest production item. It is a heck of a value for an outstanding Pinot Noir. Beautiful sassafras, pomegranate and black cherry notes intermixed with some damp earth and forest floor are all present in this wine, which also offers some baking spices and subtle background earth in its long, heady finish. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
