2007 Chronicle Wines Cerise Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 556 cases, $55. Released in the spring 2010. Clones W├Ądenswil and Pommard. Aged 16 months in 50% new French oak. Winemaker Ted Lemon. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Lovely perfume of red and black fruits and rose petals. Delicious and classy in every way with soft, ripe tannins, an appealing earthy bent to the dark fruit and a lengthy fruit-blessed finish. A polished wine of great charm. Reviewed June 8, 2010
