2012 Chalk Hill Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $50) 750ml

Chalk Hill Estate is located at the convergence of a number of diverse climates, soils and terrains in the northeastern hills of Sonoma County. The Chalk Hill AVA is a sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley, the epicenter of Pinot Noir growing and winemaking. While the estate is a bit warm for top quality Pinot Noir, our Trenton Road vineyard, located a few miles west of the winery, is ideally situated. Trenton’s 45 acres of vineyard are planted with 6 highly regarded clones of Pinot Noir, primarily Mt. Eden, Pommard, Swan and Dijon 777.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 93

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: I was blown away by the 2012 Pinot Noir Estate, a complex, intense effort from Chalk Hill’s estate vineyard called Trenton. It boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as a beautiful bouquet of violets, raspberries, blueberries and black cherries. It cuts a broad swath across the palate, and possesses a striking elegance as well as purity. Good acids buttress the wine’s richness, and its medium to full-bodied personality is impressive. Still primary and young, this beauty should age nicely for a decade or more.
