Winemaker Notes

This is a deep, dramatic and mouthfilling expression of Pinot Noir that for all of its palate-saturating richness still shows great elegance and complexity. Bright and forward, the aromas leap from the glass offering layers of cherry, mulled cinnamon stick, dusty rose, carnation, cocoa and mocha. On the palate, rich flavors of blackberry, black cherry and dark chocolate are framed by a big structure, dense tannins and seamlessly integrated new oak, all of which promise a long life in the cellar.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
A vineyard source since 2004, this Chenoweth is earthy and distinctly intense, rich and robust in blackberry and black cherry with strong elements of black pepper and cinnamon. The acidity is balanced and veering on mineral, with subtle oak on the finish and a rewarding touch of dark chocolate. The density of the tannins suggest further cellaring, through 2020.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Pinot Noir Chenoweth Ranch is a sexy, opulent, 871-case cuvee aged in two-thirds new French oak that includes 10% stems. A classic Russian River Pinot, it offers up scents of baking spices, cloves, chocolate, Christmas fruitcake, cinnamon, black cherries and black raspberries. Spicy, heady, rich and full-bodied, this ostentatious, in-your-face Pinot Noir possesses sweet, velvety, seamless tannins and crisp acidity. Drink now-2020.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Delivers a tight, juicy beam of red and dark berry flavors, with shades of anise and cedar, gaining depth and fanning out on the finish where the flavors commingle and the tannins impart traction. Drink now through 2021.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
