Chasseur Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2012
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Wine SpectatorOffering a sizable portion of herb- and cedar-laced plum and raspberry fruit, this is full-bodied and still evolving, yet headed in the right direction. Ends with complex fruit and jazzy toasty oak. Drink now through 2023.
Wine EnthusiastLight and earthy, with welcoming aromas of forest floor and black tea, this is a wisp of wine, delicate and soft, lightly spicy and enjoyable. Cherry and raspberry round out its profile, an elegant representation of Russian River Valley Pinot.
Wine AdvocateA multiple-vineyard blend from the Russian River, the 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River displays a deep ruby/plum color as well as sweet black cherry, earth and floral notes, medium to full body, a pure texture, and fine overall balance. It can be drunk young or cellared for 7-8+ years.
