Our 2018 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is dark ruby in color and displays expressive aromas of black cherry and plum backed by subtle notes of mocha and vanilla. The palate is medium bodied with bright acidity and juicy flavors that are characteristic of this cool-climate region. Our Pinot Noir finishes with velvety soft tannins and lingering notes of dark chocolate.
Since its founding, Chalk Hill has been producing artisan wines from our Estate vineyards in the hills of northeastern Sonoma County. For four decades we have studied, prodded and coaxed our complex terroir to ensure that our Estate wines deliver vivid aromatics, commanding flavors, great character and regional accuracy. While our 300+ acres of vineyards surrounding the winery will always be the cornerstone of our identity, starting with the 2012 vintage, we started producing our first Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. This Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir comes from extraordinary vineyards throughout Sonoma County consisting primarily of Foley Family estate Vineyards. Our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir features fruit from some of the best sites in Carneros, Russian River Valley, Sonoma Valley, and Sonoma Coast.
