Tasting Notes

“Medium dark red to purple in color with a vibrant purple hue leads into perfumed aromas of dark berries, crème cherry and raspberry with a light vanilla oak note. Nicely integrated with red cherry fruit, pomegranate, and strawberry preserve. Chimera has a medium weight and tannins with a silky texture and a candied fruit finish.”

89% Starscape Vineyard Young Vine (Russian River), 5% Widdoes Vineyard (Russian River), 3% Pisoni Vineyard (Santa Lucia Highlands), 3% Garys’ Vineyard (Sonoma Coast)

94 Points Antonio Galloni

“The 2021 Pinot Noir Chimera is a rich, heady wine. A burst of dark red cherry, plum, lavender, rose petal and blood orange are all dialed up. This bold, generous Pinot delivers the goods, big time. It’s a fabulous entry-level offering from Sean Capiaux, if that term can even be used here. The Chimera is mostly young vines from Starscape, with dollops from Widdoes, Pisoni and Garys’. Sean Capiaux’s 2021 Pinot Noirs are impressive. They are the best wines I have ever tasted here. The 2021s offer a combination of fruit density and vibrancy that is absolutely compelling… This is a special vintage for Capiaux.”
