Winemaker Notes

An almost opaque color and juicy aromatics are immediate indications of this wine's ripeness and intensity. Those aromas tumble forth as a wave of sweet boysenberry, cherry liqueur, plum preserves, dried orange peel, coriander seed, powdered sumac and scented pipe tobacco. These notes carry equal potency on the palate, although a well-rounded texture and mouth-coating richness easily buffer any potential clash between the blushing fruit and savory complexities. The finish is lingering and dry -- and its more subtle rendering of the wines cherry-plum fruit, roasted grain, Oriental spice and sweet humidor personality gives some indication of the more classic stature that time in the cellar could provide.

Enjoy with a rich beef roast, or give it some time to mellow.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Firm, rich, intense and concentrated, with dense wild berry, black cherry and raspberry flavors laced with mineral and anise. Dense and chewy. Best from 2012 through 2020.

Chasseur, California
Chasseur Winery Image
Chasseur Wines is dedicated to small lot, hand-crafted wines in the old French tradition with emphasis on vineyard designates. Our small size (presently about 2,700 cases) allows complete control over the winemaking process, therefore, enabling us to produce the finest wines the fruit has to offer. We are pursuing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay's final and possibly finest frontier, Sonoma's 'West County'. Still in its renaissance this area is composed of the western edge of the Russian River Valley and beyond, known as the 'true' Sonoma Coast. This area is in and around the townships of Sebastopol, Freestone and Occidental.

Our goal is to be among the pioneers to develop the potential of this area. Please explore our web site to learn more about how we make these wines from grape to glass. We offer all these wines, especially the smaller lots which may not make it to the retail shelf or the restaurant wine list through the winery.

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
