2018 Chimera shows medium red in color, a purple hue and purple core. Floral aromas akin to cherry blossoms and rose petals waft from the glass with nice toasty oak notes. A fresh, medium bodied wine showing dried cherry and cranberry flavors with a creamy texture and good tannin structure.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Chimera is compelling. Bright, sculpted and energetic, the 2018 is just singing today. Sweet red cherry, mint, blood orange, spice and rose petal all race out of the glass. The Russian River Pinot here has often been a bit juicier, but the 2018 is done in a style that emphasizes aromatic depth and focus. Of course, the wines were just bottled about six weeks ago, so there may be some bottle shock. In any event, the 2018 is superb.

Featuring juicy richness to the red currant and dried raspberry flavors, this red turns minerally midpalate, with a well-spiced finish filled with creamy accents. Drink now through 2023. 1,200 cases made.
