    Winemaker's Notes:
    Chimera is one of my earliest wines, the name taken from Greek mythology... "a monster comprised of three different animals" as is depicted on the label. Originally blended from three vineyards back in 2001, I now have access to several excellent Russian River vineyard sources that boost its quality.

    Entwined aromas of ripe cherry, pomegranate and cranberry on the nose, followed by baking spices and wonderful blackberry component. A bright ruby/purple color intensity with a big and bold mouthful of flavors like plum, cola, strawberry preserves are held together with velvety tannins and bright acidity.

    They say “fences make good neighbors” but I argue that Chimera seals a better deal!
