2019 Chalk Hill Mt. Eden Clone Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
Vintners from around the state are praising the full flavors, fresh acidity and superb balance of this year’s crop. This Pinot Noir is a true delight for the senses. A bouquet of raspberry, dried roses, dark chocolate and forest floor lead to a silky palate with ripe tannins and a round mouthfeel. This wine will age well for up to five years.
