This wine is crafted from blending several Northern California vineyard sites to create one comprehensive expression of elegant and opulant Pinot Noir.
Sean Capiaux's 2014 Pinot Noir Chimera is one of the great values in artisan California Pinot Noir. Bright floral aromatics soar over a core of sweet, red fleshed stone fruits. Readers will have a very hard time finding a classier and more delicious Pinot than this for the price. Drink this juicy, forward Pinot over the next few years. - Antonio Galloni 91 Points
The 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. - Robert Parker 90 Points
